Our Story: A sector united.
Alberta’s nonprofits touch thousands of lives every single day, providing critical supports and contributions that keep our communities vital and vibrant.
With more than 26,000 nonprofits across Alberta contributing more than $5.5 billion in GDP and employing over 286,000 employees, Alberta’s nonprofit organizations are more than vital contributors to Alberta’s economy; they also contribute to the social and cultural fabric of the province by providing key services for Albertans.
In early 2021, the Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (CCVO) hosted facilitated discussion groups across the province, where numerous leaders from the nonprofit sector expressed the need for a platform that supported a unified voice for the sector. The Nonprofit Vote is that platform – one that illustrates the strength and impact of Alberta’s 26,000 nonprofits, while advocating for the support needed to allow them to continue the delivery of key services and community supports throughout the province.
