High ideals and noble intentions : voluntary sector-government relations in Canada by Peter R Elson( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 1,961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter R. Elson examines critical historical events in the relationship between the federal government and the voluntary sector which continue to exert their influence. He demonstrates through in-depth case studies that these events are critical to understanding contemporary voluntary sector-government relations. Elson explores the impact of the regulation of charities based on amendments to the 1930 Income War Tax Act; the shift from citizen-based program funding to service-based contract funding in the mid-1990s; and advocacy regulation changes in the 1980s. Elson's case is strengthened by an important and timely comparison between voluntary sector and central government relations in Canada and England. This historically informed comparative analysis provides the basis for practical recommendations meant to improve the future of voluntary sector-government relations across Canada."--Pub. desc
Funding policies and the nonprofit sector in Western Canada : evolving relationships in a changing environment by Peter R Elson( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Funding Policies and the Nonprofit Sector in Western Canada offers a detailed yet accessible account of nonprofit funding policies in a region characterized by fiscal conservatism, a cyclical resource-based economy, and a growing share of Canada's population and GDP. The chapters in this collection offer compelling and candid analyses of the realities of nonprofit funding in Western Canada. Each combines practical insights with academic rigour, providing critical historical context and an up-to-date profile of funding for services. For each province, a leading practitioner has provided an insider perspective into a specific regime or organization: nonprofit housing in British Columbia; the politics of social policy in Alberta; sport, culture, and recreation, and lottery funds in Saskatchewan; and community economic development in Manitoba. Written by leading researchers and practitioners, Funding Policies and the Nonprofit Sector in Western Canada offers a solid foundation on which policymakers, scholars, and practitioners alike can examine the challenges and opportunities of the contemporary funding environment."--

Les fondations philanthropiques : de nouveaux acteurs politiques? by Jean-Marc Fontan( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ouvrage clé permettant de comprendre le rôle politique des fondations subventionnaires, le présent collectif est la première grande synthèse de l'histoire de la philanthropie canadienne et québécoise. Dès le début du XXe siècle, la dimension sociopolitique des organisations philanthropiques a été remise en question : quelle légitimité d'action pouvaient avoir des acteurs privés fortunés dans le domaine de l'entraide? Cet ouvrage répond à cette question en se basant sur une variété de travaux dirigés par différentes équipes de recherche. Plusieurs thèmes centraux sont abordés : survol historique et comparatif du rôle des fondations, au Québec, au Canada et ailleurs ; proposition de classification théorique et empirique des fondations ; caractérisation des relations entre les différents acteurs de l'écoƯsystème philanthropique ; identification des stratégies mobilisées par ces différents acteurs ; réflexions sur le rôle des fondations dans la création de politiques publiques ... Ce livre propose une vue d'ensemble éclairante du secteur de la philanthropie subventionnaire qui, malgré son champ d'action restreint, demeure fondamental dans les reconfigurations sociales en cours"--Résumé de l'éditeur

This project surveyed social enterprises in Manitoba during the spring and summer of 2011 to develop clear indicators of their size, market activities, and socio-economic contributions. In this study, a social enterprise is defined as a business venture, owned or operated by a non- profit organization that sells goods or provides services in the market to create a blended return on investment; financial, social, environmental, and cultural. Using this definition, researchers identified 266 operating social enterprises in Manitoba. Of the 266 social enterprises that received the survey, 118 responded. Indicators of socio-economic contribution included sales and revenue, expenditures, employment, volunteer engagement, and clients served and trained.
