Some charities may be subject to mandatory fundraising regulation through provincial or federal legislation or policies.
Charities may also self-regulate their fundraising practices through voluntary adherence to an Ethical Fundraising Code.

All Canadian registered charities must comply with Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) guidance on fundraising. The guidance, Fundraising by Registered Charities, assists charities in determining whether CRA will consider their fundraising practices acceptable and how costs should be allocated.
