New CRA Charities Education Program

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) announced a program November 2017 to conduct in-person visits with registered charities to provide them with information and assistance in understanding their obligations and give education tools to help charities fulfill their obligations and maintain their registered charity status.

A charity could be selected for a visit under the Charities Education Program for a number of reasons:

•it is newly registered

•information from its Form T3010, Registered Charity Information Return

•common areas of non-compliance, such as receipting and reporting issues
