Produced by Imagine Canada, this report summarizes the findings of the Johns Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector Project work in Canada. The findings show that the nonprofit and voluntary sector accounts for 6.8 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) and, when the value of volunteer work is incorporated, contributes 8.5 percent of the GDP, employing 12 percent of Canada’s economically active population, and provide 13 percent of its non-agricultural employment. Data is circa 2000-2003.
