Keep abreast of legislative changes affecting Incorporation and Governance of Charities and applicable taxation rules
In Canada, there is no single statute that sets out all of the legislative requirements applicable to charities. Rather, the relevant statutory provisions are found in multiple federal and provincial statutes. In addition, extensive legislative changes each year make it increasingly difficult to cope with the law. Having a concise guide to the law governing charitable organizations is a must.

Selected and prepared by charity law experts, Terrance Carter, Maria Elena Hoffstein and Professor Adam Parachin, this unique publication provides a useful reference for anyone researching key federal and Ontario statutes governing charitable organizations. This edition compiles, describes or otherwise takes account of approximately 145 statutes and 75 regulations.
