Registering a Charity - Important Tricks and Traps!
Webinar: October 15, 2014

Presented live via web conference by the CBA's National Charities and Not-for-Profit Law Section

Don't become that embarrassed lawyer who offers to undertake an application for charitable registration on behalf of a community group, only to discover that such applications are not so straight-forward and that lack of knowledge has created a significant impediment to the registration.

Attend this webinar and gain a better understanding of:

  • The preparation a client should undertake before considering an application for charitable registration;
  • The process that the CRA uses to assess applications;
  • The various sections of a T2050 application; and
  • The tricks and traps for the unwary.

Join us to hear from experienced speakers who will give practical advice on how to advise clients and structure applications for the greatest chance of success.
