It's time to be bold and drive change at Nonprofit Driven 2021!

About this event

As the nonprofit sector continues to support communities through COVID-19, the focus on rebuilding must be made with inclusive and sustainable recovery at the centre.

This year’s Nonprofit Driven is an important opportunity to gather and do that- at Ontario’s largest public policy forum and collaboration opportunity for nonprofit leaders, community organizers, and policymakers.

The virtual conference will consist of two days of vital collaboration, advocacy, and connection to explore solutions to public policy opportunities alongside nonprofit leaders from across the sector, with our favourite MC - Garvia Bailey!

What will you take away?

From helpful pre-reads on the Nonprofit Driven Library to inspiring keynotes and interactive breakout sessions, there are many ways for participants to learn before, during, and after the conference. Participants at Nonprofit Driven will be better equipped to take the bold steps needed to drive sector public policy priorities forward – together.
