Researchers at the U of S Social Sciences Research Laboratories studied the landscape of Canadian philanthropy over a one-year period, examining international aid from non-government sources including charities, universities, corporations and citizens. The result is a detailed report on the scale and structure of Canadian generosity, including significant findings on the role of faith-based organizations as sources of aid.
