$15 is a good start but Decent Work is much more than this

The Decent Work Movement in the Nonprofit Sector is a campaign to get Ontario nonprofit organizations committed to a journey to implement Decent Work in their organizations.


Workers in the nonprofit sector are passionate about their work and the sector overall provides work that is meaningful and benefits society. However, there are emerging symptoms of distress:

  • High rates of precarious part-time and contract employment
  • Low levels of retirement and benefits coverage
  • Underinvestment in training and development
  • Poor work/life balance


If nonprofit organizations commit to – and follow through on – implementing Decent Work initiatives, workers and organizations will be happier and healthier and more resilient overall. The nonprofit sector will emerge stronger and with increased capacity to meet their goals, missions and mandates in their communities.
