Sustainability, Services, Supports
These two detailed reports focus on the makeup of our membership. They analyze and share the details about how our members work, the ways in which they are different from one another, what issues they struggle with, and the important ways in which they are improving the communities in which they work.
Both reports draw largely from two surveys completed by Federation membership in 2015/16. The findings are discussed within the context of existing social sector research in BC and other jurisdictions. The two surveys were:
- Federation 2015 Member Survey (“member survey”) which asked questions on a wide variety of topics covering the previous year’s data.
- A study that was done in partnership with the University of Victoria’s School of Public Administration (“UVic survey”) commissioned specifically to compare the financial health of the sector between the 2008 and 2015 fiscal years.
