Text version: Immigration Matters to Canada’s philanthropy sector

Nearly 40% of immigrants aged 15+ are volunteers.

Between 2006 and 2016, there was a 58% increase in the number of foreign-born social and community service workers.

Nearly 1 in 5 people working in social advocacy, civic, social and giving-related organizations were born outside of Canada.

Nearly 25% of workers in these organizations are 55+ and can retire soon. Immigrants are an important source of workers for the sector.
