Home in Government, with Zahra Esmail

Image of Zahra EsmailWhile our sector has several touchpoints with the federal government, no ministry or department is responsible for improving the nonprofit sector's policy environment or economic landscape. At the provincial level, however, such models exist. For example, in 2020, leaders in British Columbia created a place inside the machinery of government to support charities and nonprofits with the appointment of its first-ever Parliamentary Secretary - Community Development and Nonprofits. In this episode, we are exploring the concept of a ‘home in government’ with our guest, Zahra Esmail, CEO of Vantage Point in Vancouver.
