Employment is integral to the health of the Canadian economy, and a study of employment in Canada’s Charitable Sector presents an analysis of the contribution the Sector makes to the country’s well-being.
This report confirms the Sector’s importance both by total number of employees, the value of employment compensation, and average compensation per employee.
We extend the report to include an analysis:
- by Full-time and Part-time employment;
- by Province;
- by Category of Charity
- and by Size of Charity (small versus large)
A section of the Report discusses the role of unpaid Volunteers and how to measure the implicit economic value of their contribution. We calculate the economic value of volunteers in Canada’s Charitable Sector.
An appendix lists the Top 10 Large Charities and Small Charities by Number of Employees and Total Compensation.
