The information released by the Government on October 25, 2018, proposes new measures which will allow a charity to carry out unlimited “public policy dialogue and development activities” in support of its stated charitable purposes. Consequently, the Canada Revenue Agency will release updated questions and answers and information for charities on the administration of the new rules by the end of the calendar year.
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has developed a series of webpages to help charities that undertake political activities to understand and comply with the rules regarding these activities. These pages explain and highlight key elements from Policy statement CPS-022, Political activities. For information on the political activities audit program and its results See Links Here
A Political Activities PowerPoint Presentation is available upon request. If you would like a copy to share with your organization, email Issues Management, Communications and Outreach.
