Reminder: T3010 Registered Charity Information Return filing extension coming to an end!

November 5, 2020 | Jordyn Allan

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Charities Directorate extended the filing deadline to December 31, 2020 for all charities with a Form T3010 Registered Charity Information Return due between March 18, 2020 and December 31, 2020.

Normally, charities are required to file their return no later than six months after the end of their fiscal year. This means that the extension applies to all charities whose fiscal period ended between September 30, 2019 through to June 30, 2020.

The Canada Revenue Agency continues to encourage charities to file their returns online by using My Business Account. With December 31st fast approaching, we encourage charities who have not already filed to complete and submit their information returns in due course.

For more information, access the Charities Directorate’s COVID response page.
