According to a new release from Statistics Canada, in 2019 there were over 130,000 nonprofit organizations in Canada, of which nearly one quarter (22.5%) were in rural Canada. Rural nonprofits employed just over one tenth (11.6%) of all nonprofit employees and were responsible for 7.3% of revenues generated. The release of the Rural Canada Non-Profits, 2019, database provides a new perspective on the activities of nonprofits in rural Canada.
Over half of all rural nonprofit organizations were in Quebec, Ontario, and Alberta
Canada had nearly 30,000 rural nonprofits in 2019. Quebec (7,176), Ontario (5,553), and Alberta (3,678) had the most rural nonprofits of all provinces and territories, accounting for 55.5% of all rural non-profits. The three territories had the fewest number of rural nonprofits at 429, collectively.
The majority of nonprofit organizations in the Northwest Territories and Newfoundland and Labrador were in rural areas
Over half of non-profits in the Northwest Territories (55.4%) and Newfoundland and Labrador (50.9%) were in rural areas in 2019. Only Ontario (12.6%) and British Columbia (15.8%) had a rural percentage of nonprofits that was below the national average of 22.5%. In Quebec, the province with the most rural nonprofits, 23.1% of non-profits were in rural areas.
Over one quarter of nonprofit organization revenues in four provinces and territories were generated by rural nonprofits
Ontario reported the highest overall nonprofit revenues in 2019, while the rural share of these revenues was the lowest of the provinces and territories at 3.8%. Rural contributions to a province’s or territory’s total nonprofit revenue were next lowest in Yukon (4.1%) and British Columbia (4.9%). Non-profits in rural areas contributed over 25% of all nonprofit revenues in the Northwest Territories (51.0%), New Brunswick (29.3%), Newfoundland and Labrador (25.8%), and Nova Scotia (25.3%).
