This LawNow magazine article discusses the release of updated and more flexible guidance on charities’ foreign activities in July by the Canada Revenue Agency. It is available at: www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/chrts/plcy/ cgd/tsd-cnd-eng.html. The new guidance features a wealth of concrete examples, a helpful listing of “measures of control,”and identifies a threshold under which a charity will not be expected to incur the expense and administrative burden of a written agreement before it contributes resources to an initiative.
