Research & Publications

Alberta's nonprofit sector is diverse, both in terms of the size of organizations, and in areas of work. However, regardless of whether your organization is 100% volunteer-driven or has hundreds of staff; whether you are mandated to protect our environment or address poverty; we are all affected by common issues. CCVO's sector-specific research helps to identify, track, and map cross-cutting issues that affect nonprofits across Alberta, and to better support your policy work.

Alberta Nonprofit Survey

CCVO's Alberta Nonprofit Survey, initiated in 2009, takes an annual snapshot of the health and experience of Alberta's nonprofits to capture information on finances, demand for programs and services, staffing, and the future economic outlook of organizations. It is the only source of Alberta-specific research on the nonprofit sector that provides insights into our province's nonprofit sector.
