Toward a Labour Force Strategy for Canada's Voluntary & Non-profit Sector (2008)

There is growing concern about the labour force challenges facing the voluntary and non-profit sector. There are more signs that organizations are less and less able to recruit the talent they need in today’s tightening labour market and are also experiencing difficulty retaining employees. This study by the HR Council for the Voluntary & Non-profit Sector takes a comprehensive look at paid employment in the sector in order to create the first-ever labour force strategy for the sector. The intent of this first report is to provide an introduction to the Labour Force Study and to provide a framework for understanding the sector’s labour force as well as the trends and demands that contribute to the sector’s labour force challenges.

This report has been organized into four sections:
- Section 1 defines and classifies the sector.
- Section 2 describes what is meant by a labour market.
- Section 3 outlines what is already known about paid employment in the sector.
- Section 4 looks at the labour market trends affecting the sector, the changing demands placed on organizations and emerging strategies to strengthen the sector and its labour force.
