Carleton team embarks on five-year research project focused on charitable organizations

Carleton University’s Master of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership faculty team have launched a five-year research project focused on gathering and sharing information about Canada’s charitable sector. The Charity Insights Canada Project—Project Canada Perspectives des Organismes de Bienfaisance (CICP-PCPOB) is supported by four foundations – the Muttart Foundation, the Lawson Foundation, the Metcalf Foundation, and the Vancouver Foundation – who have invested $3.4M in the project. “Over the past two years, our sector has been tasked with managing and responding to a global crisis with no real-time data about the impact and trends within the sector,” said Muttart Executive Director Bob Wyatt. The research project’s findings will be used to inform policy decisions, develop data capacity for practitioners, and expand stakeholder knowledge of Canada’s charitable sector.
