The Federal Court of Appeal has confirmed, in the following decisions, that a charitable organization working through an ombudsman must manage and control both the activities carried out on behalf of the charity and the use of the charity`s resources: where a charity works through an ombudsman, the charity must: it manages and controls resources. Footnote 7 For example, a charity could provide one of the following information: The Income Tax Act allows a charity to work only in two ways:Footnote 1 When a charity reports expenses for Form T3010, Registered Charity Information Return, it should report all amounts spent on its behalf by its intermediaries, as if the charity had spent the money itself. If the transfer of its resources does not meet the three above conditions, a charity can only meet its own activity test to control and control the use of the transferred resources. Footnote 9 If a charity does not do so, it risks penalties under the Income Tax Act, such as.B fines or revocation of its registration. The books and records of a charitable organization should allow the CRA to verify whether: In this situation, the boundary between the intermediary and the beneficiary may be more difficult to distinguish. Although these instructions generally believe that an intermediary is a way for a charity to carry out its own activities, in some cases a mediator may also be a beneficiary of the activities of a charity. For example, the intermediary may receive training or operational resources that enhance the capacity of the intermediary while providing the core public utility activity. The payment rate is the minimum amount that a registered charity must spend each year on its own public benefit activities or on gifts to qualified individuals. A charity and a non-profit corporation share the goal of helping vulnerable young people in a big city. The charity aims to help young people prevent and cure drug addiction. The non-profit organization offers academic support to young people with learning difficulties. They decide to rent a room together to set up a new program to help vulnerable young people finish high school. One of the principles behind capacity building is that long-term solutions rarely result from simply transferring money to a group or community without ongoing support.
As part of a capacity building approach, a long-term relationship between a charity and its partner may lead the partner to take over the programme and the charity to withdraw its resources completely in order to keep the success of the project in the hands of the former partner. The charity finds a Canadian non-profit organization that welcomes newcomers to Canada and has members who immigrated from the same country some time ago. . . .
