Online form to apply for registration

On June 1, 2019, the Canada Revenue Agency launched a suite of digital services, including an online application form that replaces Form T2050, Application to Register a Charity under the Income Tax Act. The new online application is accessible through My Business Account.

While we will continue to accept complete applications submitted using Form T2050 until September 30, 2019, we encourage you to apply using the online application form. The online form contains the most up-to-date questions, designed to help us process your application more quickly.

If you need help accessing our digital services, or have questions regarding the application process you can contact the Charities Directorate.
