Philab Ontario


The Ontario Hub sees the philanthropic sector ​as being in perpetual movement, and recognize​s the growing need to further understand community foundations’ and social enterprises’ initiatives and challenges. As individuals are directly impacted or relying on services provided by philanthropic actors, comprehending the philanthropic ecosystem is thus beneficial to all. Support funnelled to local journalism or hospitals is notable, and currently under research by our networks. In order to better understand and sustain the philanthropic sector, PhiLab Ontario takes part in the development; sharing and dissemination of knowledge present in the ecosystem. With the continuous support of our partners, research members and students, the Hub helps map the province’s foundations’ projects to further our knowledge on how they operate, the territory they cover and the areas ​they prioritize.
