Here is a CRA document we recently received through the ATIP system What type of charities were audited by CRA under the political activity program. It shows as of February 2014 with 31 charities being audited in terms of the 4 heads of charity how CRA divided up the political activity audits.

CRA advises:

Of the 31 audits initiated, those were distributed under the following heads of charity:

Poverty 2

Education 4

Religion 3

4th Head - Benefit to the Community 22

-Community Organizations
-Human Rights
-Protection of Animals
-Welfare Organizations
-Benefit to the Community
-Protection of the Environment

Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
