The first version of the Sector Monitor focused on the effects of the recent economic downturn on registered charities. The report summarizes the responses of 1,508 leaders of registered charities who answered our online survey.
"I am personally most impressed with the two of the trends that have emerged," shares Marcel Lauzière, Imagine Canada President and CEO in theSector Monitor’s foreword. "The first is the determination of organization to carry out their mission despite economic circumstances and to meet increased demand without cutting service levels. The second is the level of optimism that leaders feel for the future. This does not mean we can sit back and wait for things to get better, but it is encouraging that we have such a strong foundation on which to build."
In addition to providing current information on the state of the sector, these results provide a valuable baseline for assessing the ongoing impact of the economy on Canadian charities and the communities they serve.
