During this 5 week program you will cover the topics necessary to fulfil the financial responsibilities of managing a nonprofit including:

  • Risk management
  • Budgeting best practices
  • Dealing with CRA and knowing your responsibilities around payroll, gst and tax filings
  • Payroll and HR issues
  • Board fiduciary responsibilities including financial and legal considerations
  • Roles of the Treasurer, ED and financial staff
  • Creating a financial policy and procedures framework for your organization

This course will be broken into two secitons. The first will be a 3 hour in person training that will go through most of the content of the program. You will then get a chance to spend 4 weeks in the online environment working on the assignments and readings. At the end of week 4 a live webinar will be set where questions can be asked. During the online portion of the course, the instructor will be available to answer questions.
