Registered charity

A registered Canadian charity is an organization which:

  • Is established and operated for charitable purposes
  • Devotes its resources to charitable activities
  • Is based in Canada
  • Does not use its income to benefit its members
  • Is incorporated or is governed by a trust or a constitution

All registered Canadian charities receive a Charitable Registration Number. If you are a registered charity, you will need to provide that number to us so that we can process your application appropriately. To learn more or to register as charity, visit the Canada Revenue Agency website.
