Satellite Account of Nonprofit Institutions and Volunteering

Summary of changes

Activity on this program started: 2003

Reference period of change - 2007 to 2017

On March 5, 2019, Statistics Canada published data on the economic contribution of non-profit institutions and volunteering. The data covers the period 2007 to 2017 on an annual basis. These data were previously published in the Satellite Account on Non-profit Institutions and Volunteering, discontinued as of reference year 2008. An update was undertaken in response to multiple requests for more up-to-date statistics on Canada's non-profit sector.

This update was completed using existing base budget that is directed to priority research and data development activities. Given other priorities and demands, an ongoing statistical program cannot be sustained unless permanent funding is in place. This release represents a one-time update of the statistical product. Additional updates are not planned at this time.

Reference period of change - 2008

The last release of the Satellite account of non-profit institutions and volunteering was in December 2010. This program has been discontinued, however, as part of the Canadian System of National Accounts historical revision (2012) a portion of this account will be published on a quarterly basis, specifically the activities of non-profit institutions serving households. Statistics Canada will publish a paper outlining how users can construct estimates of the non-profit sector account using data from Statistics Canada.

Reference period of change - 2007

No data will be released for the 2006 reference period.
