Training/Events Calendar

To continue our support of all non-profits, charities and community groups in the province, we have pulled together a list of resources to help during the coronavirus pandemic. Visit COVID-19 Resources to learn more.


Throughout the year, we work hard to identify, develop and deliver effective, engaging and relevant training to boards, staff and volunteers. Our in-house workshops are a great way to build those essential skills needed to further your career in the non-profit and voluntary sectors.
