The non-profit sector offers a range of careers that are dynamic, engaging, and rewarding.
Whether in the fields of art, culture, education, the environment, information technology, heath
care, social development, or sport, countless career paths are available for people who share the sector’s common vision: to make a difference 
A survey conducted in 2003 by the HR Council for the Nonprofit Sector found that nearly
1.2 million people in Canada perform paid work for non-profit organizations. This translates
into more than 7 per cent of the Canadian workforce.
2 The sector’s employers include
some 69,000 non-profit organizations nationwide. They are active in a variety of areas –
health and social services, religion, development and housing, arts and culture, sports and
recreation, the environment, education and research, fundraising, and law, advocacy, and
politics – both in Canada and internationally.
