Stabilizing for Recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact upon Canada’s social good sector, and the sector’s recovery will stretch far beyond the economic restart.

It is critical that we continue to work collaboratively to stabilize our sector, positioning it for the post-pandemic recovery in order to ensure that Canadians and the communities in which they live can benefit from a strong social fabric.
