There are a couple of important qualified donee categories that have increased in size – first the “List of municipal or public bodies performing a function of government in Canada registered as qualified donees” which is largely aboriginal bands and secondly, the “List of universities outside Canada registered as qualified donees”.

There are 461 “municipal or public bodies performing a function of government in Canada registered as qualified donees“.

There are 659 foreign universities that have qualified donee status:

  • 527 in the US
  • 52 in the “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”
  • 80 universities elsewhere outside of Canada

Here is an article we recently wrote for foreign universities on how to get on the list.
