Caring Canadians, involved Canadians: highlights from the National Surveys of Giving, Volunteering and Participating


This report offers highlights from the National Survey of Giving, Volunteering, and Participating (NSGVP) which was undertaken to better understand how Canadians support individuals and communities on their own or through their involvement with charitable and nonprofit organizations. The NSGVP was conducted as a supplement to the Labour Force Survey in November 2000. For this survey, thousands of Canadians aged 15 and over were asked how they: gave money and other resources to individuals and to organizations; volunteered time to help others and to enhance their communities; and participated in the practices which help give substance to active citizenship. The results from this survey allow this report to tell a story about who Canada's volunteers, charitable donors and civic participators are and the ways in which they contribute to our society.
