Canada’s nonprofit maze: A Scan of legislation and regulation impacting revenue generation in the nonprofit sector

A new report funded by the Wellesley Institute. In this report I take a look at the impact of our antiquated legislation and regulatory regime for Canadian charities and nonprofits. The sources of revenue for Canada’s charities and nonprofits are changing and our regulation has not kept pace. The result is a tangled maze of legislation and regulation that is seriously constraining Canada’s charitable sector from adapting to the changing times and leaves our nonprofit sector without access to financing and enabling legislation.

There is a companion piece identifying some of the policy implications of the regulatory maze is a companion document to the main report

  Most of the reports are in Adobe's PDF
