We recently wrote about obtaining the CRA guidance on advancement of religion at CRA’s Draft Guidance Advancement of religion and charitable registration is released through ATIP. That article included a July 2016 version of the CRA guidance on religion which had not been released by CRA except through the ATIP request. Apparently CRA has been using that guidance or similar guidance since 2013. We recently obtained another copy of the draft guidance advancement of religion and charitable registration dated May 2017. The text is identical to the 2016 version so we know that at least until May 2017 this document was the internal guidance of CRA on advancement of religion and charity registration.
