We recently reviewed the T3010 Registered Charity Information Return database for 2018 as part of the Sean Blumberg Transparency Project.  The database covers 84,323 of the 85,800 registered charities in Canada that had filed their T3010 for 2018 and were processed into CRA’s Charity Listing database by May 2020.

This article provides a snapshot of the registered charity sector in Alberta taken from a subset of the 2018 T3010 filings.  Also, we have completed Blumbergs’ Snapshots of the Canadian Charity Sector for 2010 – 2018 as well.

Keep in mind that these statistics only relate to registered charities under the Income Tax Act (Canada) and not to the 80,000 -100,000 non-profits across Canada which are not registered charities and for which CRA is not permitted to release information.

Here is a copy of the Blumbergs’ Snapshot of the Charity Sector in Alberta 2018.
