Critical Conversations Toolkit

Making plans of any sort is challenging in a world of change and uncertainty. Now, perhaps more than ever, it is time for nonprofit leaders and leadership teams to make time for a variety of conversations about areas of critical importance to ongoing sustainability.

The Critical Conversations Toolkit is based on our fundamental belief that conversations are of critical importance to ongoing organizational sustainability and are a necessary, inclusive, creative, and thought-provoking style of working together.

The goal of this toolkit is to help staff and board leaders of nonprofit organizations better understand their current and anticipated capacity to deliver services and their place in the sectoral landscape. In the toolkit are a context-setting thought piece, tips for holding critical conversations, and five downloadable questions sets in the vital areas of Health and Safety, the Changed Nature of Our Workplaces, Funding and Finance, Governance, and Program Sustainability.


Vaccination Policies for Nonprofit Employers

As more Albertans receive their COVID-19 vaccinations and return to the office, nonprofit employers must be clear on their responsibilities and obligations and put policies in place to protect their organizations, employees, and volunteers.

This toolkit contains a Q and A document that addresses from a legal perspective the most common questions asked by nonprofit employers about vaccinations.

Also part of the toolkit is a recorded webinar from June 2021 that provides legal perspectives on the occupational health and safety obligations of nonprofit employers with regards to COVID-19 and the employment and privacy implications of various vaccination policies. 

Find the Q and A document and watch the recording.
