The province is hiring a non-profit firm to help other non-profits connect with each other, and government services.
The province says that Vantage Point in Vancouver will develop a network in the hopes of improving access for all non-profits in the province to health support, housing and food security.
Parliamentary secretary for community development and non-profits Megan Dykeman says non-profit organizations are vital to both people and their communities.
“That is why we are supporting Vantage Point to develop B.C.’s provincial non-profit network so together they can deliver even better services for people than before,” said Dykeman.
Through a $650,000 investment from the province, Vantage Point will do research and data sharing on the current sector, where they plan on putting together a committee to set up a governance model and priorities for the network.
They hope to address ongoing issues with the sector through this committee.
