Beyond Synergy: Charities Building the Future Canadians Want

As a follow up to his Charities, Sustainable Funding and Smart Growth discussion paper, Chief Economist Brian Emmett presents a strategic architecture for government and the charitable and nonprofit sector to address the looming social deficit in Canada. The missions of charities align with building the future Canadians want – one that is equitable, inclusive, and environmentally responsible – but without attention to the economic contributions of charities and regulatory reform of out-dated rules and regulations, the innovation necessary to fulfill this promise will be greatly impeded.

Unfair or Unwanted? Competition Between Charities and Nonprofit Businesses in Canada

As Canadian charities face a long-term crisis of financial sustainability, they are looking at ways to increase earned income. At the same time, for-profit businesses have become more active in areas once thought to be the unique domain of charities. 

This discussion paper, by Chief Economist Brian Emmett, argues that for-profit businesses and charities co-exist in many markets, both benefiting from government support, and that tax policy has little, if any, effect on market shares and earnings of for-profit businesses.
