The CRA has issued a media advisory that the “Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue, will launch public consultations to clarify the rules regarding the involvement of registered charities in political activities.”  She will make the announcement tomorrow, Tuesday, September 27, 2016 in Ottawa. This consultation will give the public an opportunity to express their views on charities and political activities.  

We have provided a large amount of documents and analysis on the issue of charities and political activities in our political activity directory.  We will be helping various organizations with their discussions and submissions on this important topic.
