A new charity, The Pemsel Case Foundation, has been established that will be of interest to charities and practitioners in the sector.  The Foundation has been established to conduct research and advance the public’s understanding of the law of charities.

Peter Broder, Executive Director of this new charity, announced its inception, and its first research publication, as follows:

The Foundation is pleased to announce the release of the attached discussion paper, Charity and Politics in Canada – A Legal Analysis, by Maurice Cullity Q.C. as our first research publication. The Honourable Mr. Cullity is a retired judge of the Ontario Superior Court and former Osgoode Hall law professor.  We are extremely happy that he agreed to take on this important topic as our first publication. 
 
The Pemsel Case Foundation is a charity registered to advance public knowledge and understanding in Canada about the law of qualified donees, registered and common law charities. This will be done though research, education about legal and regulatory issues relevant to the Foundation’s research, and making amicus curiae submissions where appropriate.

The paper was released in conjunction with the launch of The Pemsel Case Foundation website.  The website can be found at www.pemselfoundation.org .

Those working in this area know that the development of the case law relevant to charities would be welcome.  It is hoped that the introduction of The Pemsel Case Foundation may increase the likelihood of appropriate issues being considered by the Courts.
