[Update - if you are interested in T3010 information on Canadian registered charities check out www.charitydata.ca]
CharityFocus.ca is a new tool created by Imagine Canada to allow searches of Canadian registered charities. You can now also search by directors.
The link to search by directors of registered charities is here:
Keep in mind the fact that names are often misspelled. The data looks at the last year filing - so a revoked charity from 6 years ago will still show the person even though the organization is not a charity and may not even exist anymore.
You can use wildcard searches so if you want to find James Bond you can try Ja* Bond. You can also try 007.
As the search is otherwise exact you might want to try similar names so Timothy Huckster you might want Tim Huckster.
Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
