In a recent Federal Court of Appeal decision, Cheder Chabad v. The Queen, the registered charity Cheder Chabad had asked that CRA be prohibited from publishing a notice of revocation until the charity had exhausted all its rights to object and appeal. In other words CRA should not revoke their status for years while the appeal process winds its way up to the SCC. The charity operates a Jewish boys school. The charity then reduced its request that the notice of revocation be delayed for 6 months. The Federal Court of Appeal in this particular case gave the charity a four month period in which the CRA could not publish a notice of revocation to allow the charity a few months to organize its affairs and to avoid prejudicing the education of about 180 students which was to begin in a few days. After the four-month delay the CRA can revoke the charity.
