I took a look at the T3010 Registered Charity Information Return statistics on foreign activities by Canadian charities for 2010.  The total 2010 amount identified by all charities including gifts-in-kind (GIK) is almost $2.7 billion.  299 charities spent more than $1 million outside of Canada.  5355 charities identified spending some amount outside of Canada.  Some of the top GIK numbers are scams and will reduce the total.  On the other hand the total will rise as a result of funds spents outside of Canada but as gifts to qualified donees which are not counted in these numbers.

Here are some statistics that may be of interest:
