Dear Colleagues,
Welcome to the 2018 Alberta Nonprofit Survey.

This year, along with questions about your organization’s financial, operational, and programmatic experience, the Alberta Nonprofit Survey also explores the impact of an updated Employment Standards Code and the theme of adaptive capacity.

This annual survey remains the only source of province-wide "state of the sector" research capturing the experience, evolution, and health of the nonprofit and charitable sector in Alberta. The final report is highly-regarded by nonprofit leaders, board members, elected officials, and public servants. Your submission is an important part of painting a complete picture of the sector in Alberta.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. In order to gather a snapshot of the sector, we would like one submission per organization.

This year, in addition to an online survey, we will be talking to nonprofit leaders across Alberta about their experiences. At the end of this survey, there will be an opportunity to express your interest in joining us in a focus group. 

If you would like additional information about this survey, please contact Neale Carbert at

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I'm looking forward to sharing with you the results of this year's Alberta Nonprofit Survey.
