The Commission on the Reform of Ontario’s Public Services (aka the Drummond Report) opens up a critical dialogue about the government’s fiscal and public service plans for Ontario in the coming months and years.
This is a discussion we all need to be part of: ultimately, it is about the future of the communities and people served by nonprofits across the province. The Commission makes hundreds of recommendations, most of which are to some degree relevant for the nonprofit sector.
ONN has focused on aspects of the report that affect the broader nonprofit sector. We welcome an analysis of the report and its potential implications from individuals, organizations, and specific sub-sectors. We are currently compiling postings on the Commission’s report from across the broader nonprofit sector.
