All registered charities are required to fill out a T3010 – Registered Charity Information Return, each year and submit it to the Charities Directorate of the Canada Revenue Agency. The return provides information about the registered charity, including contact information, a general account of the registered charity’s activities, and financial information such as income, expenditures, assets, and liabilities.  it is similar to a US Form 990, although the T3010 is far shorter and simpler than the Form 990.   It also has schedules which may or may not pertain to a particular charity including schedules that cover directors, foreign activities, employees, large foreign donations and gifts in kind.
