CRA has posted the T3010 Registered Charity Information Returns for 82,000 of the 86,000 Canadian registered charities.   About 477 Canadian registered charities identified conducting political activities whether by volunteer, staff or spending funds. Here is a link to our article "Which charities spent the most on political activities in 2013?"

In the chart, we look at Canadian registered charities who answered “yes” to question C5 (line 2400) “Did the charity carry on political activities during the fiscal period?”  Then we note (Line 5030) “the total amount spent by the charity on these activities?”  Then the final column notes the amount spent by these charities on charitable activities to give a sense of the size of the charity and the proportion of expenditures that are charitable in comparison to political activities.
