Every year charitable and nonprofit sector leaders from across Canada congregate in Ottawa for our annual Hill Day.
Together, we meet with dozens of MPs, Senators, cabinet ministers and senior officials across the Hill. We lobby these decision-makers to consider and take action on:
- the social and economic impact of charities
- our sector’s value to Canadian society
- our common needs and agenda
Join us on the Hill!

Elevating the sector’s voice
The idea of a Hill Day is not new. Organizations and associations representing a wide variety of interests and organizations have engaged in coordinated efforts on Parliament Hill for years, if not decades. Indeed, charities and nonprofits themselves have launched high-profile efforts to promote awareness and policies directly related to their missions.
We’re building momentum – each Hill Day since the first in 2015 is getting bigger and louder.
What is fairly new is our ability and willingness to come together as a sector, to remind decision-makers about the things we have in common, and work together on common challenges to elevate our voice in the sector. If we keep at it, the federal government will have no choice but to keep us at the fore of their decision-making.
