CRA Charities Directorate Website to be Enhanced

February 12, 2014

The Government also announced that the CRA will receive funding to enhance its website (which is already quite informative) and to provide more extensive information to the public on charitable giving trends and characteristics in Canada. It is hoped that making data on charitable giving and trends more accessible will enhance the public’s understanding of the charitable sector.

The sector has often noted the importance of public education relating to the nature of the sector and the extent of public support. We expect that the CRA will consult with the sector and stakeholders when determining the new content that will be added to the CRA website.
