NONPROFIT DRIVEN 2019
NOVEMBER 27-28, 2019
Ontario’s nonprofit sector is a positive force on the frontlines of community challenges and opportunities, providing on-the-ground solutions to improve people’s lives. We can’t be modest about the profound impact nonprofits and charities have on communities, nor the roles we play in tackling important issues across Ontario. Join 600 nonprofit and community leaders and policymakers at the largest public policy forum for Ontario’s nonprofit sector. Nonprofit Driven 2019 is two full days of interactive and insightful plenary sessions, workshops and networking opportunities to help individuals, their organizations, and the nonprofit sector.
GREEN SUNDAY HOLIDAY MARKET
DECEMBER 8, 2019 10 AM to 7 PM
“Green Sunday” aims to challenge and offer an alternative to Black Friday and mass corporate consumerism by holding space for equitable, transparent and mindful consumption. Space where every item has a story and isn’t contributing to the current climate crisis in the name of profit. Rather, the community here in Toronto will enjoy a lovely afternoon of mindful shopping and good holiday cheer in a space that is inclusive, welcoming, and thoughtfully curated. Encouraging Torontonians to rethink the way they shop this holiday season by showing support for companies that operate with a social and environmental purpose by selling local, upcycled, reclaimed, repurposed, all-natural, eco-conscious, package-free, and ethical goods. In addition to the market vibe, there will be a local climate keynote, a maker space, zero-waste wrapping demos, and the event will conclude with a local artist showcase for the final two hours. From zero waste tools, handmade items, jewelry & clothing, local yummy nibbles, and so much more, you’ll find something special for everyone on your list and feel good about it! This year, give the gift of green!
