Top Ten Compliance Issues for Canadian Registered Charities @ Online
Oct 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

A Webinar with Mark Blumberg
– The 2020 Edition

Presented by Sustainability Network

A great deal has been written about legal compliance surrounding charities in Canada.

Much of that material, however, is highly specialized, hard to understand and sometimes esoteric. As a result, it can be extremely difficult for charities, employees, and volunteers to focus on the issues that are most important.

This webinar provides plain-language information and resources about the CRA compliance obligations of Canadian charities for 2020.

All participants will receive a confirmation email and a link to join the webinar through Zoom. A recording of the webinar and a copy of the presentation slides will be provided to registrants.
