In addressing the challenges that the nonprofit sector is facing due to the pandemic, CCVO’s first order of priority is to centre community in Alberta’s recovery. CCVO made a submission to the provincial government pre-budget with a request for a $350 million investment into a Social Infrastructure Fund. Social infrastructure are assets to society that support the quality of life of a nation, region, city, or neighbourhood. These assets support us to create a more resilient, just, equitable, and sustainable society. A Social Infrastructure Investment like the one proposed to government would create 4500 jobs – nearly three times more than the type of capital projects in the province’s plan – and jobs for women and racialized people.
