Support the 2023 Platform Priorities

resource image

Election season is upon us! Let’s use our collective voice to make nonprofit sector issues election issues. 

With a Provincial Election on the horizon, we call on Alberta’s parties to include the 1 out of every 20 Albertans working in the sector in their platforms – and the 4.4 million Albertans who benefit from it.  

The five priorities laid out by TheNonprofitvote partners include: Appropriate Funding, A Workforce Strategy, Better Data Collection, A Door to Government, and An Empowered Sector.

You can read more about these priorities here

Join us in calling on your party leaders to incorporate our priorities in their platform priorities!  

Nonprofits employ nearly 300,000 Albertans and together contribute $5.5 billion to the economy every year. They provide food and basic needs, settlement and senior supports, sports and recreation, arts and culture, entrepreneurship, environmental health – and more. They are proven, established partners in the delivery of essential services.  

Between historic underfunding, a global pandemic, inflation and surging demand amid a workforce crisis, the nonprofit sector is in crisis.  

Our sector – its employees, volunteers and beneficiaries – has a responsibility to speak up about the issues that matter to us. If we stay silent, we let other sectors drive the agenda and we may not see meaningful commitments on issues that matter to us.  

The Nonprofit Vote partners have developed a series of priorities, rooted in feedback and data from the sector, to forge a collaboration with the Government of Alberta and ensure the vitality of this essential sector.  

If you agree that Alberta’s nonprofit sector is too essential to fail, join us in calling on your party leaders to incorporate in their platform priorities. 

Happy Election Season! #nonprofitsvote 

Too Essential to Fail is a nonpartisan effort led by Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (CCVO), Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (ECVO), FUSE Social, Volunteer Lethbridge, and the Rozsa Foundation.
