Helping you help others
Charities play an important role in Canadian society. There are already over 85,000 charities within Canada and approximately 4,500 applications for charitable status are received annually.
CentrePoint, with a financial contribution from the Canada Revenue Agency, developed this site as a comprehensive guide for those considering pursuing charitable status within Canada. We have developed a comprehensive suite of tools, resources and learning material to help you determine if charitable status is right for you and if so, how best to pursue it.
