2020-2023 Strategic Plan
The CSCNS engaged in a robust process to update its Strategic Plan for the next three years, 2020 – 2023. In early 2020, APEC provided an updated economic impact study of Nova Scotia’s nonprofit and volunteer sector. It also conducted a confidential survey, on behalf of the CSCNS, completed by over 445 nonprofit organizations, to better understand the contributions and challenges facing these organizations as employers.
Separately, PONO Consultants worked with CSCNS in the autumn of 2019 and early 2020 to do extensive consultations across the province, interviews with more than 30 key stakeholders, and research on emerging trends. Separately, eight consultations were held across Nova Scotia. These sessions were attended by Community sector leaders from over 160 nonprofit and voluntary organizations.
Sharing what we learned about the sector and how we plan to contribute to its growing impact on the economy and life of the province is important.
