On a number of occasions we have assembled a list of Canadian charities that had lost their registrations for cause. We have now updated the list to August 2014. This list contains over 5 years information on charities deregistered as a result of audit, which used to be referred to as “for cause”. This list does not include registered charities who were revoked for “failure to file” their annual return or asked for voluntary revocation or those that were revoked for the sole reason that they were corporately dissolved.
The information is taken directly from the CRA’s publicly accessible database located at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/haip/srch/advancedsearch-eng.action. Here is the article:
