The Charities Directorate of CRA has recently announced that it is looking for feedback from registered charities on CRA's videos, social media content, and other educational initiatives. This is an opportunity for registered charities to connect with CRA and help make educational information for charities more accessible and clear. Charities have until May 31, 2019 to submit any feedback, and we do encourage charities to do so. Below is the full text of CRA's letter.
"Charities, we want to hear from you!
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is always looking for new and innovative ways to communicate with you, and we’re looking to you to tell us how we’re doing.
Your feedback is important as we want to make sure the information we’re providing you is effective and is helping you meet your compliance obligations.
We’ve set up an online consultation on the CRA website where you can let us know what you think of our videos, social media content, and other educational initiatives. You can also tell us how you prefer to receive information and provide us with new ideas. The consultation is open until Friday, May 31, 2019.
Your comments will not only tell us how we’re doing, but will also help us find the best ways to share our latest tools, information, and program initiatives.
We look forward to hearing from you and we encourage you to share this message with your members so that we can reach as many charities as possible.
Thank you for your participation!
Canada Revenue Agency"
