Posted under News | What's New from the Charities Directorate of CRA | Canadian Charity Law
CRA recently released a letter that provides general comments and suggested information that needs to be submitted to the Charities Directorate of the CRA when municipal or public bodies performing a function of government in Canada are applying to be a ‘qualified donee’. This new requirement to apply and be registered on a publicly available list of qualified donees came into effect on January 1, 2012. This category is particularly relevant to the Aboriginal community such as Indian bands. The CRA is still developing the process for applying for registration. However, this letter provides groups with an idea of the information that CRA would require.
