The 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 look at the NFP sector and 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 the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) to ensure our research and policy recommendations are timely and relevant to the sector and reflect its values.View all Mowat NFP publications
Sector Signals are short descriptions and analyses of early warning signs that should be on the sector’s radar. They may be innovative ideas or challenges facing the sector. Topics are identified through sector engagement and are developed through collaboration. The goal of the Sector Signals series is to provide recommendations for action and suggestions for future research.View all Sector Signals publications
Mowat NFP aims to be responsive to opportunities in the sector for research and learning. Sector Opportunities are activities that are identified through consultations and that are emerging priorities for the sector.View all Sector Opportunities publications
