Charitable Status and CED: What You Need to Know (Webinar recording)

Date: 
10 December, 2012

This summer, the Canada Revenue Agency published CG-014 - Community Economic Development Activities and Charitable Registration Guidance.  This document replaces Guide RC4143, Registered Charities: Community Economic Development Programs and marks the first significant update since 1999.  This webinar examined what has changed in the new guidance, what hasn’t, and what organizations that have or are considering applying for charitable status need to know. 

BACKGROUND

Community Economic Development was first explicitly recognized as a potentially eligible charitable activity by the Canada Revenue Agency in 1999.  Since then, the field has evolved rapidly, with program-related investments, social enterprise and social finance emerging as innovative practices that left charities wondering about their eligibility. 

In this session, representatives of the Canada Revenue Agency reviewed the new guidance and clarify what has changed, what hasn’t and what the changes mean for organizations with or considering seeking charitable registration for CED activities.
