Accounting, Tax and Consulting for
Non Profit Organizations

Non Profit Organization Industry Overview

The nonprofit sector in Canada plays a vital role in addressing a wide range of social, cultural, and environmental issues. Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) are typically community-based organizations that are driven by mission rather than profit. They can be found in a variety of sectors, including social services, education, the arts, and the environment.

NPOs in Canada rely on a combination of government funding, donations, and earned income to operate. Many NPOs also rely on volunteers to help carry out their missions. NPOs play a significant role in the fabric of Canadian society and make important contributions to the well-being of communities across the country.
