The Nonprofit Vote Platform Launches to Support Alberta Nonprofit Advocacy

The Nonprofit Vote
Description / Summary

CCVO is proud to be a supporting organization of The Nonprofit Vote, a new nonpartisan platform for nonprofit advocacy, launched at the CCVO AGM. The platform was created to bring light to the strength of Alberta’s nonprofits, while advocating for the support needed to allow them to continue the delivery of key services and community supports throughout the province.

The Nonprofit Vote currently hosts these four active campaigns:

  • #nonprofitsvote Calgary
  • #nonprofitsvote Edmonton
  • #nonprofitsvote Wood Buffalo

The #nonprofitsvote campaigns mobilize nonprofit staff, board members, those who access nonprofits, and community members to vote with regional nonprofit priorities in mind in upcoming municipal elections.

Community Recovery Now

This campaign calls for the Government of Alberta to invest 3.5% of the Alberta Recovery Plan or $350 million into a Community Recovery Fund targeted to support Mental Health; Diversity, Equity, Inclusion; Youth Engagement; and Digital Transformation. This investment would create 4,500 jobs in communities across Alberta, and specifically jobs for women and racialized people.
