Words from our members

Lisa Kordiaka

Business Administrator at The Harbour, A Community Church

Once again, I'd like to thank the CCCC for the assistance that was provided. I recently emailed a financial question and received a reply within hours. This was a huge help and I was able to furnish our accountant with information which will assist them to understand how charitable organizations are run. You offer many other services, I know, but I've been helped countless times by you to do a better job.

Executive Director at Mully Children's Family Canada

As a first-time executive director, who started in January 2020, I cannot say enough how CCCC has been a lifeline professionally and ministry wise. I have called the CCCC office so many times to ask for help. I have been amazed each time by the thoroughness and wealth of knowledge that the team has. Thank you for the incredible work you do to support ministries such as Mully Children's Family Canada (MCF)!

I appreciate the ability to just call and get to the right person, I never feel rushed by them, and the follow up always exceeds what they say they would do.

Executive Director at Haven Ministries

The CCCC’s legal and technical advice is always beneficial for us; it's a service we could never afford on our own. They’re like our CFO in a box. It’s critical for Haven to have the oversight we need to be appropriately governed. The articles and advice from CCCC bring to light areas we can improve, and the charity handbook is invaluable.

I appreciate that CCCC is very accessible as a touchstone to confirm my understanding of the law. They have high credibility and I know I can trust their opinion.

Kirk Giles

Co-Lead Pastor at Forward Church

We value that we don’t have to do the work of research when CRA makes certain decisions – we can rely on the guidance from CCCC. As certain needs arise, we know that we have a friend and connection in areas like policy development, charity law, and trends of what’s happening in the Christian charity sector. CCCC is an incredibly valuable resource.

I am learning so much about leadership and governance by serving with the CCCC Board. The example of integrity is a model for me personally and Youth For Christ Canada where I serve as Director of Operations.

Financial integrity matters to us at Compassion Canada and it matters to our supporters.

Director of Operations at International Needs Canada

A short note to let you know how much we, at International Needs Canada, appreciate and value our partnership with CCCC. We especially love having the opportunity of giving our employees access to the CCCC pension plan. Being part of a larger group of organizations is especially beneficial to our employees. They are able to participate in a plan that provides lower administrative fees, which will benefit them on retirement. The employees can easily access their plan online and make their own decisions regarding the investments that work best for them. We are happy to be able to provide the CCCC pension plan to our employees knowing that we are partnering with a trusted organization.
