The T3010 is a great resource on the Canadian charity sector.  We recently reviewed the T3010 Registered Charity Information Return database for 2011 as part of the Sean Blumberg Transparency Project.  The database covers 82,848 of the approximately 86,000 registered charities that had filed their T3010 and were processed into the CRA’s Charity Listing database by November 2012. Canadian registered charities are currently required to disclose on the T3010 in Section D or Schedule 6 certain financial information on assets and liabilities, as well as revenue and expenditures.  We thought it would be interesting to look at the total financial figures for all the Canadian registered charities.  They are presented as both excel format and also inserted into the T3010 itself at the end.  The Canadian charity sector is a vital part of Canadian society and economy.  As you can see from this article it has revenue of over $212 billion and expenditures of over $205 billion.
