Canadian registered charities must file the T3010 Registered Charity Information Return within six months of the end of their fiscal year, although some are not able to meet that deadline and file soon thereafter. It is a very important form because despite its limitations it is really the only uniform way to obtain information on all registered charities in Canada. Some people are surprised to find out that answers on the T3010 are not always reliable. I am going to make a few comments on the reliability of the T3010 and specifically with respect to questions relating to “political activities”.
