Over eight months in 2010, the Ontario government consulted with not-for-profit organizations and their representatives on ways that the government could better support the NFP sector. "Participants advised on legislation, policies, structural issues and funding mechanisms. They also contributed ideas on how to better coordinate policy, research and communication with and for the sector."
