Charities and giving
Charities listings, register and run a charity, and charitable tax credits.
As part of government actions taken in dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Charities Directorate is extending the filing deadline to December 31, 2020, for all charities with a Form T3010, Registered Charity Information Return due between March 18, 2020 and December 31, 2020. This will allow charities more time to complete and submit their T3010, recognizing that charities will be focused on deploying their resources to address the effects of the COVID-19 virus situation.
The Charities Directorate has suspended all operations until further notice, which includes our call centre as well as all registration and audit activities. For information on operating a charity, you are encouraged to review the Charities and Giving webpages.
Charities are also encouraged to register for CRA’s secure online services. Through My Business Account, you and your representatives can access the new digital services for charities, which provide you with the ability to complete and file online Form T3010.
We apologize for the inconvenience and we will provide updates as the situation evolves.
