The Canada Revenue Agency ("CRA") has provided a new option for charities to receive the latest notices from the Charities Directorate and the annual reminder to file the Form T3010, Registered Charity Information Return, by e-mail (rather than by regular mail).
To receive these notices by e-mail, you can contact the Charities Directorate by phone at 1-800-267-2384 or send a letter by fax to the Client Services department at (613) 954-8037. It is important to note that if a charity chooses to submit an e-mail address, the CRA will discontinue sending these notices to your charity’s office address that they have on record.
Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
