There are over 69,000 organizations employing almost 1.2 million people in the non-profit sector in Canada in areas such as health and social services; development and housing; arts and culture; sports and recreation; environment; international; religion; education and research; law, advocacy and politics; and, fundraising and grant making. Organizations that employ professionals, such as our graduates, are associations, non-profits, charities, advocacy groups, foundations, social enterprises and co-operatives. The non-profit sector accounts for over 7% of the GDP in Canada, making it larger than the auto industry in Ontario. Graduates will have the skills, knowledge and credentials to embrace management opportunities in any of the diverse array of organizations in the social sector.
Full participation in the Non-Profit and Social Sector Management Graduate Certificate is applicable for 75 points in Category 1.B – Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.
Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
