The primary aim of the satellite account of non-profit institutions and volunteering is to identify the economic contribution of Canada’s non-profit sector and allow for an increased understanding of its interaction with other sectors of the economy. The account contains a set of economic statistics describing Canada’s non-profit sector. It includes a set of standard economic accounts and a nonmarket extension to put an economic value on unpaid volunteer labour. See About the satellite account of non-profit institutions and volunteering.
