The Non-Profit Sector Appreciation Week Act, also known as “Bill 9”, is a piece of legislation passed by the government of Ontario that declares the third week of February each year as “Non-Profit Sector Appreciation Week.” We must recognize the critical role that non-profit organizations play in Ontario’s communities and acknowledge the contributions and achievements of the individuals who volunteer within these organizations.
