Federal/Provincial/Territorial Network of Charity Regulators

The Federal/Provincial/Territorial Network of Charity Regulators (FPT network) meets to discuss issues related to regulating charities across Canada, to identify potential areas for communication and collaboration, and to share news on legislative or policy developments. The FPT network was established in 2004 in response to the recommendations of the 2003 Joint Regulatory Table. Recommendation 20 of the report of the Special Senate Committee on the Charitable Sector in 2019 reconfirmed the need for ongoing collaboration.


The FPT network provides a forum to improve the intergovernmental regulation of charities. Its goals include:

The Canada Revenue Agency hosts the FPT network, which meets twice a year and plays a collaborative role in advancing the CRA’s mandate to contribute to the efficiency of government.


The FPT network comprises officials from federal, provincial, and territorial governments who play a role in regulating charities. These officials include representatives from corporate registrars and other government areas responsible for the charitable sector.
