The NPORIP was a major initiative of the Federal government to look at the approximately 80,000 – 100,000 organizations that are non-profits but not registered charities and the extent to which there are compliance issues.  In July 2013 the CRA prepared a draft “final” 76 page report (the “July 2013 Report“) which we have attached.  It is 18 MB so it may take a minute to load.

Then in October 2013 there was a further “final” report but it was only 20 pages long and had far less detail. (“October 2013 Report“)  We posted the October 2013 Report in April 2016.   

CRA has been increasingly focused on the activities of Canadian non-profits that are not charities.  Some of these organizations may have to restructure to be compliant with the legal requirements pertaining to them.  We have assisted many organizations in dealing with these potentially complicated issues.
