Training in Canada's nonprofit sector was examined through a review of data from Canada's Workplace and Employer Survey, which collected data from a nationally representative sample of Canadian workplaces and paid employees in those workplaces. Overall, 61% of employees in nonprofit organizations considered a postsecondary credential necessary to do their job (versus 36% of employees in the for-profit sector and 70% in the quango sector, which was defined as nonprofit organizations in "quasi-public" industries). About half of employers in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors reported increases in skill requirements since beginning their current jobs. Employers in all three sectors rated the importance of increasing employee skills highly. Nonprofit organizations were more likely to provide training for their employees than for-profit organizations were. Training in the for-profit sector was more likely to consist of on-the-job training. Women and employees aged 35 or older in the nonprofit and quango sectors were much more likely than their for-profit counterparts to have received training in the previous year. Thirty-six percent of employees in the nonprofit sector and 38% in the quango sector stated that they received too little training for the demands of their job (versus only 27% of employees in the for-profit sector). (Twenty-five tables/figures are included. The bibliography lists 21 references.) (MN)
