Canada is a nation of diversity, which has created a society of mixed languages, cultures, faith, various levels of education, and other variety of aspects of life. With the increasing diversity of Canadians, the demand for community services has also increased. Approximately 85,000 nonprofit organizations engage in community activities in Canada, and almost similar amount of charitable organizations.
Canada’s charitable and non-profit sector is diverse and vibrant, and touches almost every characteristic of Canadian life. It creates collective actions of community leaders, professionals, and driven by community members who come together to generate solutions to common problems, and to build stronger and more resilient local communities.
Despite willingness to support the community, in the implementation oftentimes there is confusion of the project being similar to the organization’s routine operational work, or the project moved away from the organizational strategy. We begin with fundamental question in nonprofit Project management: how the practitioners bring into life the idea of improving various aspects of communities’ life through a project?
This course offers opportunities for participants to obtain additional knowledge and skills on developing a project derives from an idea of supporting communities who serve seniors, women, youth, First Nations, employment centres, faith groups, or homeless people.
