The Nonprofit Sector in Interesting Times: Case Studies in a Changing Sector
School of Policy Studies, Queen's University, 2003 - 272 páginas
Relying upon the traditional virtues of innovation and commitment, these organisations are redefining their relationship with governments, forging new intrasectoral alliances, learning new virtual realities, and altering their behaviour to suit shifting funding and policy imperatives. In The Nonprofit Sector in Interesting Times the authors capture this changing environment and evaluate its effects on voluntary organisations as they strive to serve Canadians better, whether at the federal level, across the provinces, or in rural communities. The cases explored here include internet regulation and privacy legislation, conservation efforts and biodiversity, the savings behaviour of NPOs, the breast cancer policy community, and voluntary sector-government compacts. Contributors include Kathy Brock, Philippe Barla (Universit Laval), Malcolm Grieve (Acadia), Femida Handy (York University), Alison Li (York University), Agnes Meinhard and Mary Foster (Ryerson University), and Susan Phillips (Carleton University).
