In 2020, Statistics Canada released a survey of the 2018 Giving, Volunteering and Participating. It provides key statistics and information about how Canadians give of their time and money.


The objective of this process is to fund 1 project to support not-for profit organizations in analyzing and disseminating the data. This will help citizens, businesses, not-for profit organizations and others to have a better evidence-based understanding of the nature of giving and volunteering in Canada.

Eligible organizations can apply for a project up to $1,000,000.

The successful project will begin in fall 2021 and end by March 31, 2025.
