Tax-Exempt Organizations

Our Tax-Exempt Organizations group provides a full range of services to all tax exemption organizations including charitable organizations and foundations, not-for-profit organizations, municipalities and First Nations.

Our lawyers are often involved with the initial organization and registration of charitable organizations with the Canada Revenue Agency. We continue to work closely with the clients to ensure that they maintain compliance in this highly regulated area with respect to matters such as fundraising, disbursement quotas, director remuneration and charitable activities in Canada and abroad.

Our lawyers are also experienced in dealing with the unique rules applicable to not-for-profit corporations and municipalities and have experience in providing advice in respect of the unique taxation of Canada’s First Nations peoples.
