April 21, 2015

April 21, 2015 was Federal Budget Day.  While the Budget did not contain extensive charity-related measures, it did include several changes that will be important to the sector.  These changes are generally positive and are focused on further encouraging charitable giving and facilitating easier investment activities by registered charities.  Further good news was that the Budget also does not introduce any major new compliance burdens on registered charities or non-profit organizations.  As such, it should be well-received by the sector.
