The charitable and not-for-profit (NFP) sector is an essential driver of Ontario’s economy and society. Its resilience has emerged as a critical issue for Ontario’s future. In 2012, Mowat established a research hub to provide evidence-based research and analysis on systemic issues facing the sector in Canada, with a particular focus on Ontario.
As part of an independent think tank with strong partnerships with government and the sector, Mowat NFP brings a balanced perspective through which to examine the challenges facing today’s sector and to support its future direction. Mowat NFP works in partnership with umbrella organizations such as the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) and Imagine Canada to ensure our research and policy recommendations are timely and relevant to the sector and reflect its values.View all Mowat NFP publications

This research series from Mowat NFP explores different dimensions of an enabling environment in the relationship between the charitable and non-profit sector and government. The series is intended to help the federal government and the charitable and NFP sector develop a modern federal policy framework that enables the sector and strengthens its ability to improve the quality of life of Canadians and people around the world.
