There are many things your charity could do that would be considered “good things” but are they the “correct things” according to your charitable status?
As strategy changes, charity leaders must ensure that activities are still in line with what the government understands your charity to be doing. Ministries could be making changes in their major activities without understanding the potential implications.
For example, is the government aware that,
Your church is hoping to send missionaries to a new country?
You have decided to launch a new ministry on a school campus?
You are offering an ESL program in your church?
If you are serving as a board member or staff leadership team member such as an Executive Director, Pastor, or person responsible for filing the annual T3010 with the Canada Revenue Agency – this webinar is an important one for you!
Why? You need to know how your charity legally exists, its charitable purpose(s), the activity boundaries that creates, and how to meet your legal reporting duties to the governing authorities when changes occur – planned or otherwise.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 2, 2019, and sign up for our free webinar: Things change! Why you’re legally required to tell the government when your charity’s purposes or major activities change.
Join Gilbert Langerak, Manager of Member Support at CCCC, as he addresses:
- reviewing and understanding your charity’s governing documents & charitable purposes, whether incorporated or not;
- whether the activities you carry out are still on track with what you told the government you’d be doing;
- the all-important discernment question when contemplating making changes; and
- when changes happen, how to meet legally mandated reporting requirements to the appropriate government bodies – both the Canada Revenue Agency and incorporating authorities, if incorporated.
The presentation will be about 25 minutes, and the remaining 20 minutes will be devoted to the questions that you submit in the live chat. The webinar will be held at two different times.

This webinar is open to all, but only CCCC Members will receive complimentary access to the webinar recording.
