This guide provides background info on how to navigate Imagine Canada's Standards Program.

"Imagine Canada’s Standards Program offers a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and nonprofits designed to strengthen their capacity in five fundamental areas: A. board governance B. financial accountability & transparency C. fundraising D. staff management E. volunteer involvement.

The Standards Program is first and foremost a capacity-building initiative. Any organization may use these standards to improve and monitor its practices. Information about how to comply with the standards, as well as tools and resources to help organizations continue to strengthen their practices, is available free of charge. Organizations wishing to demonstrate publicly that they meet the standards can participate in a voluntary peer-review-based accreditation process."
