  • Imagine Canada pleased with federal budget measures relating to charities | Imagine Canada
    in the sector The budget announced a number of measures that respond to some of the key recommendations made during the Finance Committee s hearings on Incentives for Charitable Giving and subsequent proposals made by Imagine Canada and other charities These measures which will reduce administrative costs and burdens for charities while encouraging increased giving include electronic filing of registration information and annual financial returns reforming the Criminal Code to allow charities to use computer technology to run lotteries saving millions of dollars a year in administrative costs doubling the period during which tax credits for the donation of ecologically sensitive lands can be used by donors and greater clarity and flexibility for trustees of estates to maximize charitable donations from those estates The budget does not impose any new requirements or restrictions on political activities carried out by charities The budget includes a proposed measure to restrict charities from accepting donations from foreign governments or agencies thereof identified as sponsors of terrorism and we have confirmed that this will not impose any new administrative requirements or costs Today s budget does recognize the vital role played by charities in Canadian society We see this as setting the stage for further investment by the federal government once the budget is balanced said Lauzière A number of sensible low cost reforms announced today will help to reduce red tape and administrative costs for charities Progress has been made on a number of the recommendations made by the Commons Finance Committee regarding charitable giving and we look forward to action next year on the most important investment identified by charities the Stretch Tax Credit for Charitable Giving Imagine Canada also looks forward to contributing to the ongoing consultations with the nonprofit and private sectors announced in the budget to explore the potential
