This report compares and contrasts the organizational structure and strategies of three (unincorporated) Canadian nonprofit organizations attempting to influence public policy, examines their contributions to the public policy debate and analyzes whether differences in organizational form or strategies may have greater or lesser influence. Two of the organizations, Campaign 2000 and the National Children's Alliance, were involved in public policy issues related to children. The third, the Health Charities Council of Canada, has a mandate to seek influence on Canadian health policy. This report is a background paper to a case study report that examined ‘Benefits for Children: Case Study on the Role of Canadian Nonprofits in Development of Public Policy developed for the Institute On Governance.

This was part of a series of studies in Canada and Southeast Asia sponsored by CIDA under a component of the Canadian government's Voluntary Sector Initiative, Sectoral Involvement in Development of Public Policy.
