The CRA in June released their “Consultation on the Proposed Guidance on Activities Outside of Canada for Canadian Registered Charities”. The Consultation is at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/chrts/plcy/cnslttns/ccrc-eng.html Here is a copy of an earlier paper that I delivered to the 2009 National Charity Law Symposium of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) and the Ontario Bar Association (OBA) Charity and Not-for-Profit Law Sections entitled New CRA Foreign Activities Guidance:
Charities Circumnavigating the World Without Falling Off the Edge. It discusses what is new with CRA’s views on foreign activities based on a draft CRA paper.
