National Study on Board Governance

Strategic Leverage Partners Inc. and the Centre for Voluntary Sector Research and Development, a joint initiative of Carleton University and the University of Ottawa have developed a web-based survey that will form the base of a National Study of Board Governance Practices in the Canadian Non-Profit and Voluntary Sector. The survey has been designed in response to shifts in the environment in which Canada’s nonprofits operate and a desire to share governance practices across sub-sectors and organizations. The survey aims to gather information that will help nonprofit and voluntary sector boards across the country become more effective in their governance roles. The results will be shared with nonprofit organizations across Canada.

The survey can be found at:


The survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and will be open until May 17th 2005. Your responses will be automatically saved as your go so you can exit the survey and come back to it at a later time. Please feel free to skip any questions that do not apply or are not clear to you. Responses to any of the questions will be helpful to us in our study.

Your opinion is important to us, and we appreciate you taking the time to complete it. Please be assured that all information you provide will be kept STRICTLY confidential. Results will be reported in aggregate form only. Your answers will be treated anonymously, and will not be linked in any way to your email address, or any other information that would compromise your anonymity.

For more information about the survey, please contact either Strategic Leverage Partners (Grace Bugg or Sue Dallhoff ), or the Centre for Voluntary Sector Research and Development (Paula Speevak-Sladowski or Tatyana Teplova).

This National Study is generously financed and supported by contributions from Bridgeway Foundation, the Canadian Educational Standards Institute, The Muttart Foundation, Volunteer Canada, the Institute of Corporate Directors , and the Ontario Hospital Association.

Thank you for your help in making this survey as valuable as possible to our sector.
