National Survey of Non-profit and Voluntary Organizations (NSNVO)
Summary of changes
Activity on this program started: September 2001
The National Survey of Nonprofit and Voluntary Organizations (NSNVO), conducted in 2003, was a cost recovery survey funded indirectly by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) for which the objective was to produce statistical information on the finances, human resources and challenges faced by these organizations. HRSDC ultimately decided to expand the scope of the project to include other types of organizations which are not in operation strictly with the objective of making a profit, but that are operating in order to achieve certain cultural, social or economic goals. This survey is being called the National Survey of Community Sector Organizations.
