Summary note:
The Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (CSGVP) is a national survey conducted by Statistics Canada. The survey asks how Canadians support one another through their time, money and other resources, either on their own, or through their involvement with charitable and non-profit organizations. The CSGVP is the result of a partnership of federal government departments and voluntary sector organizations that includes Imagine Canada, Canadian Heritage, Health Canada, Human Resources and Social Development Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, Statistics Canada and Volunteer Canada. This survey is an important source of information on Canadian contributory behaviour, including giving, volunteering and participating. The objectives of the CSGVP are threefold: 1) to collect national data to fill a void of information about individual contributory behaviours including volunteering, charitable giving and participation; 2) to provide reliable and timely data to the System of National Accounts; and 3) to inform both the public and voluntary sectors in policy and program decisions that relate to the charitable and volunteer sector.
