Since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared over 9 months ago, community-based charities and nonprofit organizations have been working tirelessly to provide emergency support, in particular to individuals and communities experiencing heightened vulnerability.  

Charities, nonprofit organizations and First Nations governments are pillars of their communities who are working tirelessly to serve their communities.  We know the need for funding is still significant and we’re continuing to advocate for broader recovery and stabilization support for the charitable sector.
