A Not for Profit network

Lisa MacNeil & Brad Jacobs

It is often called the third pillar of the economy, the not for profit sector, of the volunteer sector

In Canada it contributes more than 10% to the GDP, but sometimes people who work in that sector sometimes feel isolated, and a little like they are re-inventing the wheel every time they undertake a major project.

Here in Cape Breton the not for profit sector is trying to network and trying to exchange some ideas. There are now efforts to set up a group much like the Chamber of Commerce.

Lisa MacNeil, from the Northside Guest Home Foundation, and Brad Jacobs is from the Cape Breton Hospital Foundation.
