CRA News Release: launch of Webinar pilot project for charities

Now available on the Canada Revenue Agency web site, the Honourable Jean-Pierre Blackburn, Minister of National Revenue announced the launch of pilot Charities Information Webinars as part of the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Small and Rural Charities (SARC) Initiative.

"The CRA recognizes the unique needs of small and rural charities and is providing another useful learning tool for Canadian charities," said Minister Blackburn. "We know that the majority of charities are small, and operate through the goodwill of volunteers who give their time and passion to work for a charity they believe in. The Government of Canada will continue to listen and to respond to the needs of these charities in support of the valuable services they provide in communities across Canada."

According to the news release:

"Beginning in the fall of 2009, the CRA will offer registered charities four information Webinars a month, two in French and two in English, on a variety of subjects. The pilot project will last for one year and provide a convenient interactive forum for registered charities to get the information they need to comply with the tax rules for registered charities."
