Mailing Address for Paper T3010 Submission has Changed

Authored by Philip Milley, Associate Director Legal Affairs

Every year, charities are required to complete and file Form T3010, Registered Charity Information Return, within six months of the charity’s fiscal year.

Failure to file the T3010 on time is cause for the revocation of the charity’s registered status and may also result in a $500 penalty as a re-registration fee. Each year, hundreds of charities are deregistered for failure to file their T3010; in fact, failure to file continues to be the leading reason for deregistration.

Charities that intend to file paper returns with the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) on or after October 8, 2018 should note that CRA has changed the mailing address for filing a return. The new address follows:

Charities Directorate
Canada Revenue Agency
105 – 275 Pope Road
Summerside PE C1N 6E8

Any return filed on or after October 8, 2018 should be sent to this new address. If returns are mailed to the prior Ottawa address after this date, processing delays can be expected, as the returns will be automatically forwarded to the new address.

This change is applicable only to the T3010 Registered Charity Information Return; all other correspondence should continue to be sent to the Charities Directorate, at the following Ottawa address:

Charities Directorate
Canada Revenue Agency
Ottawa ON K1A 0L5
