Nonprofits and retrenchment in Alberta
This qualitative research study examines how 10 nonprofit agencies in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have been impacted by the retrenchment climate. Two key variables are examined: financial stability and advocacy indicators. These variables are measured in a five year span (1990-1995) when neo-conservative policies were paramount. A general downward trend was evident regarding financial stability. Advocacy activities continued to be utilized by executive directors of nonprofits despite an increasingly hostile external environment. A slight positive correlation between financial stability and advocacy indicators was found.
