Starting December 12, 2017, Corporations Canada will allow copies of documents filed under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (CNCA) to be purchased online. Copies of the documents can be ordered using Corporations Canada’s Online Filing Centre and orders will be processed within one business day. This will allow those in Federal non-profit organizations that are registered under the Federal CNCA to obtain documents on their organizations even more easily and efficiently than has been the case. It will also allow those interested in a particular Federal non-profit to obtain the same information.
The charity sector in Canada is vitally important. Charitydata.cabeta provides some information on registered charities as disclosed by those charities in their T3010 annual return. The information provided on this website is provided “as is”, subject to our disclaimer, and may not be accurate and/or complete. We hope that you find charitydata.ca helpful.
The US House and Senate are looking at major changes to the tax code that could have a significant impact on US donors and whether they receive any tax incentives for their donations. Now, 1 in 3 US donors may get a tax incentive when they donate to charity; with the proposed changes, only 1 in 20 US donors will receive a tax incentive for their donations. A number of US charity umbrella groups have been lobbying hard to prevent certain changes. We will know shortly whether the charity sector will be blindsided or if last minute amendments will occur. There are lots of lessons here for Canada.
