Consultation with not-for-profit sector now online

Strengthening the Partnership Between Government and the not-for-profit sector

TORONTO, July 14 /CNW/ -


An interactive, online consultation with the not-for-profit sector was launched today as part of The Partnership Project.

The Partnership Project is a discussion about how to strengthen the relationship between the Ontario government and the province's not-for-profit sector.

With more than 45,000 not-for-profit sector organizations in Ontario, the consultation hopes to attract a broad cross-section of participants and opinions. The website features an online survey, interactive discussion blog as well as a portal where participants can submit research or other relevant documents.

In addition to the online consultation, the Co-Chairs have been hosting small, regional Roundtables with groups across Ontario to discuss ways to renew, streamline and modernize the relationship between government and the not-for-profit sector.

QUOTES from the Co-Chairs of the Partnership Project

"The online consultation is an open forum for discussing what is and isn't working in the sector and to generate new ideas about how government and the sector can work better together. We are asking the sector to identify changes that can be made to strengthen the relationship between the provincial government and the not-for-profit sector."
- Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration

"Almost every person in Ontario comes in contact with a not-for-profit organization, either as an employee, a volunteer or a service recipient. We invite all Ontarians, particularly those who work for not-for-profits, fund them or receive services from them to participate in our online discussion,"
- Helen Burstyn, Chair, Ontario Trillium Foundation
