Too Essential to Fail: 2023 Platform Priorities

resource image

With a Provincial Election on the horizon, we want the nearly 300,000 nonprofit workers and the communities they serve prioritized in party platforms. We’re speaking up - and you can join us!

Here’s how the Government of Alberta can help support jobs, ensure community well-being and attract investment.

The Priorities:

  • Appropriate Funding: Invest $300 million over 3 years in a Community Prosperity Fund for nonprofits to address the impacts of the pandemic, inflation, and historic under-resourcing to ensure this essential sector is here for Albertans when they need it most. 
  • A Workforce Strategy: Undertake a labour market study and strategy to stabilize the nonprofit workforce through addressing recruitment and retention concerns.
  • Better Data Collection: Collaborate on data collection to ensure government and nonprofits can be more effective through data informed actions.
  • A Door To Government: Explore creating a dedicated space in government to share challenges, successes and opportunities with renewed partnership from the Government of Alberta to address them. 
  • An Empowered Sector: Make funding go further by cutting red tape and sharing decision-making with nonprofits on the most effective allocation of government dollars.
