Data from the 2012 Research and Development of Canadian Private Non-profit Organizations survey are now available.

Organizations in the private non-profit sector intend to perform $169 million of research and development (R&D) in 2014. These organizations conducted $151 million of R&D in 2012. They employed 1,386 full-time equivalent R&D personnel in 2012, the latest year for which these data are available.

  Note to readers

Private non-profit organizations do not generate income, profit or other financial gain. For purposes of measuring research and development (R&D) performance, private non-profit organizations include voluntary health organizations, private philanthropic foundations and private research institutes. Private non-profit organizations that are controlled and financed by government (at least 50%) or affiliated to higher education institutions are excluded from the survey population. R&D expenditures for these excluded private non-profit organizations are included in the R&D expenditures for the government and higher education sectors.

These data are not available for provinces or regions.
