It appears that the changes from the T3010B to the T3010-1 will be minor and all of the are referenced in the link: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/chrts/bdgt2010/t3010_nsrt-eng.html relating to the March 4, 2010, Federal Budget.  That will be a relief for many charities wondering if there were dramatic changes.   

Changes to what you must report on Form T3010B, Registered Charity Information Return Read This Important Information
Budget 2010
On March 4, 2010, the Minister of Finance presented the 2010 Federal Budget, which proposed a number of measures affecting registered charities. The measures included a significant change to the disbursement quota calculation, as well as changes to several connected concepts, such as “specified gifts” and “enduring property.” These changes affect how you fill out Form T3010B, Registered Charity Information Return, which you must file on behalf of your charity every year.

Additionally, Form T1242, Registered Charity Information Return Summary, that we send you on receipt of the T3010B, will be changed, and Form T1259, Capital Gains and Disbursement Quota Worksheet, is no longer applicable.
