Abstract

Many of the initiatives expressed in the federal budget draw on government reports that focused on ways to update the rules on the establishment of a charitable organization, registration for tax purposes, and the regulation of registered charitable organizations. Those reports discuss transparency in charitable activities, the role of administrative costs, the need for financial instruments for charitable organizations, and capacity-building.
