Senator Rob Black, famous for his work for 4-H and the Rural Institute of Ontario, is promoting a Senate report on charities.
It makes 42 recommendations, including Black’s favourite, which is a call to create a “home within government” for charities and non-profits.
Black said he hopes the government will accept the recommendations to reinstate a human resources council for the voluntary sector, the development of a human resources renewal plan, and the creation of a national volunteer strategy.
“I’ve been extremely impressed by the hard work and dedication of charities, non-profits, and volunteers across Canada,” said Black.
“I hope that our report will lead to real change and help to reinvigorate the sector.”
