  • Stats Can research the diversity of boards: Statistics Canada has issued a survey seeking information on the diversity of charitable and non-profit boards across Canada. This information will be used to help non-profits and charities understand how their board compositions compare to similar organizations. We hope that Saskatchewan non-profits will be represented in this information, so we encourage you to complete the survey if you are interested. The survey deadline is December 23, 2020. You will find the survey link here: https://www.statcan.gc.ca/eng/survey/business/5344

We wish you light and joy at this holiday season and in the new year! MCoS will be closed from Noon on December 24th – January 3rd, 2021.
