Topics: What's New from the Charities Directorate of CRA, Canadian Charity Law, Political Activities and Canadian charities, Transparency
The T3010 now asks additional questions about political activities. So far the CRA 2013 database has about 36,000 charities on it. There are in total approximately 86,000 Canadian registered charities who will file their T3010s. Therefore, less than half of the 2013 T3010 forms have been filed and inputted into the CRA database so far. By January or February of 2015 we should expect an almost complete data set. We have exported the information from the 2013 T3010 database in Schedule 7 dealing with description of political activities from the registered charities that have made filings.
