NPQ North: Journalism & Social Finance in Canada’s Budget Cause Controversy


Keenan Wellar on Nonprofit Quarterly

Huge announcement! Nonprofit Quarterly has taken the next step with me to put a bit of a brand on my contributions about Canadian nonprofit news! Here’s the announcement from the top of my latest article – but please read and use the share buttons on the article to help demonstrate that Canadians want their own dedicated source of NPQ news about our charitable sector!

Keenan Wellar is NPQ’s new point correspondent for Canada’s civil sector. He’ll be penning a periodic column called NPQ North to focus on trends and events above the border. Today, Keenan takes on the debates that have emerged around a new structure proposed for journalism organizations—one neither nonprofit nor for-profit.

Tip of the cap to my Order of Canada father


Keenan Speaks

I’ve fallen way behind on keeping my “Keenan Speaks” site updated, probably because any “extra time” I have goes to my new role with Nonprofit Quarterly, mainly contributing weekly newswires.  I have continued my regular appearances on the 1310 News Power Lunch (about once a month) and on March 22 had a bit of fun discussing the issue of “new bridges” for Ottawa. I had mentioned to host Mark Sutcliffe that my father Barry Wellar had recently received the Order of Canada, and he brought this up in the context of this topic, so I channeled dad a bit in this segment that ends with a Barry-style zinger!

The Structured Inclusiveness of #RedforEd: A Union Strategy with Staying Power


My last NPQ newswire in February. and it’s an interesting one!

Keenan Wellar on Nonprofit Quarterly

For my last Nonprofit Quarterly newswire of February, I take a look at how the #REDforED movement has become more inclusive and more focused on social justice issue, part of the explanation of why it is expanding and attracting many new partners for issues of racial injustice, economic equality, and more. There is much more going on here than a “teacher strike” and it just keeps growing!
