  • Canada’s Evolution and the Charitable Sector as its Steward | Imagine Canada
    innovation as much as by gifts of natural resources Arguably this sort of economy will be at one and the same time more personal and less personal or more human and less human at the same time It will be more personal or human in the sense that people and their talent and innovativeness and education will be the key to economic success the key factor of production to use depersonalizing economic terminology It will be less personal and human in the sense that workplaces will involve more information technology and less face to face interaction Increasingly work will be decentralized and interaction with others will take place electronically In this world people will increasingly seek the personal and human outside the work place they will want to come together in organizations like charities and nonprofits because they want to make a difference because they want the enrichment that arts and sport provides fundamentally because they want the connection to the personal and the human Since they are smart and are used to sophisticated business models and metrics they will want to participate in a way that makes sure that their efforts make a real measureable difference in the world Therefore the structure of a sophisticated modern charitable sector staffed by professionals at home in the knowledge economy will be essential to giving people the outlets they desire for their creative human impulses This future is a huge challenge for the charitable and nonprofit sector On the one hand this is the world in which charities will have to live and prosper a world of smart and technologically literate people who are accustomed to management by metrics On the other the sector will need to be much more than simply a way of achieving goals which governments and businesses have

  • Your Standards Program Application Made it to Peer Review! Congratulations. You’re in good hands. | Imagine Canada
    reviewer who told us It was rigorous and challenging but created the opportunity for our Board to have conversations we may not have had otherwise We are better and stronger for it By the sector for the sector In full accordance with the mission of the Standards Program the panel s objective is to be supportive of each application and promote best practices in the sector rather than be punitive and look for gaps After all the Standards Program was developed by charities and nonprofits to help organizations increase their transparency and strengthen their operations But that doesn t mean that the process isn t exacting We really worked hard on responding to the Imagine Canada staff review of the submission we made A number of the points they raised challenged us to do developmental work In some cases we needed to re think the way we do things Now we look forward to the peer review feedback Thanks for supporting this process of growth and development for our organization Mike Coxon CEO Mills Community Support Corporation A great deal of work happens before an organization s application is deemed ready to be peer reviewed by the organizations applying for accreditation by program staff here at Imagine Canada who review each submission and by the volunteer peer reviewers who spend hours independently reviewing applications before the Peer Review Panel meets Because of this high level of commitment most applications are accredited or conditionally accredited See which organizations have been accredited We re interested Where do we start If you ve made it this far you re in good hands Initially peer reviewers do the majority of their work in isolation Dave Spedding of UNICEF Canada told us With the first few applications I worried if I was being too lenient
