To reduce the administrative burden on charities, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is modernizing its Information Technology (IT) systems to provide new digital service options.
In June 2019, the Charities Directorate will make several digital services available as part of this initiative:
- Form T2050, Application to Register a Charity under the Income Tax Act, will be replaced by a new online application for registration.
- Registered charities will be able to complete and file their T3010 Registered Charity Information Return online through CRA‘s My Business Account.
- Charities will be able to update their organization’s information online and correspond with the Directorate electronically through My Business Account.
The information below will help charities prepare for these services and answer any questions you may have.
