10 Quick Facts about the Saskatchewan Voluntary Sector (November 2014)

1. Based on data analysed from 2010, Saskatchewan has the highest volunteer rate in Canada when compared to other provinces/territories; this provincial rate is 58% compared to the national average of 47% (http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/120321/t120321a1-eng.htm).

2. Also based on 2010 data, Saskatchewan boasts the second highest average donation rate. Citizens of this province donated, on average, $544 to voluntary organizations (http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quotidien/120321/dq120321a-eng.htm).

3. Based on a pan-Canada study released in 2004, Saskatchewan had the second highest number of voluntary organizations per capita; the territories had the highest rate (http://sectorsource.ca/sites/default/files/nsnvo_report_english.pdf).

4. There are at least 7,800 registered nonprofits and registered charities in the province (http://sectorsource.ca/sites/default/files/nsnvo_report_english.pdf).

5.      The three largest types of voluntary organizations in Saskatchewan are those in the areas of religion, sports/recreation and arts/culture (http://sectorsource.ca/sites/default/files/nsnvo_report_english.pdf).

6. There are fourteen different types of voluntary organizations in the province: arts/culture, sports/recreation, education and research, universities and colleges, health, hospitals, social services, environment, development and housing, law/advocacy/politics, grant-making and fundraising, international, religion, and business and professional associations/unions.

7. The voluntary sector is distinct from the government, private and co-operatives sectors and has its own legislation. Voluntary organizations are independent from governments, do not distribute profits, are self-governing (e.g. they have their own internal democratic processes), and have a significant degree of voluntary participation.

8. One of the earliest, largest and most active voluntary organizations in Saskatchewan was the Saskatchewan Anti-Tuberculosis League which began its work in 1911 (http://spheru.ca/publications/files/Historical%20voluntary%20sector%20work%20on%20health.pdf) .

9. Saskatchewan is in the process of developing its own community-based network of voluntary organizations which will generate new energy and excitement within the sector.

10. There are some academic courses on the voluntary sector offered at the two Saskatchewan universities and some colleges in the province, but there is no co-ordinated, holistic approach to academic programming to serve diverse student interests. The Nonprofit & Voluntary Sector Studies Network is intended to provide this.
