Zachary Euler of the CRA Charities Directorate mentioned today in a presentation to the Blumbergs’ Charity Law Institute that CRA has recently posted a “Political activities self-assessment tool” on their website.  The “Political activities self-assessment tool” is a helpful, plain language English/French tool that will help charities understand whether they are conducting political activities, whether they are appropriately tracking and reporting on those activities.  I guess you could call it ‘CPS-022 for Dummies’.

Here is a link to the “Political activities self-assessment tool”:
