Our Work in 2020

With the impact of the pandemic, we advocated for a not-for-profit stabilization fund and urged all levels of government to see the critical role that not-for-profits play in BC’s recovery.

We have asked the BC government to create a home for the not-for-profit sector for over two years, and we were thrilled to see Niki Sharma appointed to the role of Parliamentary Secretary of Community Development and Non-profits in November 2020. We have been a prominent voice sharing your concerns around the Lobbyist Transparency Act and the administrative burden it creates for not-for-profits.
