Oftentimes charities operate in a sector or industry that also includes private sector firms. The best way to learn about a sector is to consult sector publications. You can find these using a Canadian News Search or by consulting Canada’s Business Registries or Web Wire. Industry publications often provide a great deal of information about current trends in the industry, as well as comparative data on the industry’s top players.
