Evaluation of the Office of Consumer Affairs' Contributions Program for Non-Profit Consumer and Voluntary Organizations

In 1997, the Office of Consumer Affairs of Industry Canada established the Contributions Program for Non-Profit Consumer and Voluntary Organizations (the Contributions Program) in its current form. The overall objective of the Contributions Program is to strengthen the consumer's role in the marketplace through the promotion of sound research and analysis of consumer issues, and encourage the financial self-sufficiency of consumer and voluntary organizations. This Program supports consumer and consumer-focussed research by non-governmental organizations in Canada. Its intent is to support organizations in producing quality, independent and timely research on consumer issues affecting the marketplace and developing policy advice that is both credible and useful to decision makers. The Contributions Program can allocate up to $1.69 million in contributions annually.
