GIV3 addresses the Senate
In 2017, Senator Terry Mercer advanced a motion to form a Special Committee in the Senate to study the future of the charitable and nonprofit sector. In 2018 the Special Committee on the Charitable Sector was created.
The members of the Senate Special Committee are: Terry M. Mercer (Chair), Ratna Omidvar (Deputy Chair), Robert Black, Mike Duffy, Ghislain Maltais, Yonah Martin and Judith Seidman.
The Committee is scheduled to report by December 31, 2018 and has a broad mandate to consider the impact of laws, regulations, and government policies on charities and nonprofits.
In September 2018, GIV3 Chairman John Hallward was invited to speak in front of the Senate Special Committee, and you can read the brief here.
