Searching the CRA Charity Directorate’s website - a workaround
Posted under News | Canadian Charity Law
Have you ever had trouble finding information on the CRA’s website relating to charities? Well the site has really improved over the last couple of years and is a lot more user friendly. However, here is a suggestion if you are looking for a document on the CRA website. Go to google and if you are are looking for information on disbursement quota type in the following:
disbursement quota site:http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/chrts/
That will search the charity directorate website in English for documents that have the words disbursement and quota - if you want the phrase “disbursement quota” try putting it all in quotation marks “disbursement quota”. Now I must admit that finding documents on disbursement quota is not going to help you actually understand anything about it - for that you need to speak to Elena Hoffstein! Unfortunately there is only so much that CRA and its webmaster can do - the rest is in the hands of Finance.
