Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating)/National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (NSGVP)

The Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (formerly the National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (NSGVP)) provides information on the charitable giving, volunteering behaviour and civic participation of Canadians – how Canadians support individuals and communities on their own or through their involvement with charitable and nonprofit organizations. Data include donations to voluntary organizations, volunteering activities and other forms of participation. It was first conducted in 1997 and again in 2000 as the National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (NSGVP). In December 2001, the Prime Minister announced that the survey would receive permanent funding, be conducted every three years, and would be renamed the Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating to differentiate it from similar surveys in other countries. Data collection for the next Survey will take place in fall 2004. The Survey is conducted by Statistics Canada and is overseen by a Steering Committee comprised of government and voluntary sector representatives.

An overview report for each data collection provides highlights of the survey results. Further analysis and dissemination of the results of the 2000 Survey were funded by Human Resources Development Canada and Canadian Heritage through the Capacity Joint Table of the Voluntary Sector Initiative. The results of this analysis are presented in fact sheets which outline how Canadians in each province give, volunteer and participate in their communities. The fact sheets are currently available at www.givingandvolunteering.ca.

The Government of Canada has committed funds to support further analysis and dissemination of subsequent collections of the Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating.

The Capacity Joint Table Advisory Committee supports a range of research initiatives on the voluntary sector. The Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating is one of three research and information projects focusing on profiling the size, scope, and contributions of the voluntary sector to Canadian society. The two other projects are the Johns Hopkins Comparative Non-profit Sector Project and the National Survey of Nonprofit and Voluntary Organizations.
