CCAR is actively engaged in an application process to renew our qualifications to issue tax receipts under the Canadian Income Tax Act. CCAR considers that amendments to the Income Tax Act announced in the 2015 Canadian federal budget and announced in July, 2015, will permit organizations such as ours to apply to restore our Canadian charitable status. CCAR is hopeful that we will be able to issue receipts qualifying for tax relief to Canadian donors within the first quarter of 2016. The recent change of government, however, may create some delays, but the outcome of our expectations remains the same. In the meantime, you may be entitled to claim tax relief in Canada to the extent that you are receiving U.S. source income. Prospective donors should consult their legal counsel or accountants to determine the extent to which their donation may be eligible for Canadian tax relief.
