2016 Ontario Budget: What It Means For The Nonprofit Sector & Your Organization
Now that the province-wide consultations are over, the Finance Minister has new shoes, and the Ontario Budget has been read... what next? Does your organization, like many others, find it difficult to determine exactly what this 500+ page Budget document means for the future of your work and the nonprofit sector?
Join Pedro Barata and Howard Green of the United Way of Toronto and York Region who will join ONN’s policy team for a provincial budget analysis webinar. This webinar will improve your provincial budget literacy... because no one should have to read a Budget document alone!
During this webinar, you’ll learn:
How to identify key Budget measures that affect nonprofits
How to identify other helpful resources to make sense of the Budget and its implications for your organization
What options exist for reacting to provincial Budget initiatives, including:
getting your MPP's or Minister's attention
rallying partners to raise awareness and take collective action
communicating with the Province on how you can play a role in working together on shared objectives
