List of Canadian Registered Charities

If you are considering leaving a gift to a charity in your will, or for that matter, making a gift to a charity while you are alive, you may want to make sure that the charity is able to issue a tax receipt. A charitable tax receipt will allow you, or your executor on your behalf in the case of a gift in your will, to claim a charitable tax credit, thereby reducing your income tax. Canada Revenue Agency has a listing of registered charities, which you can search to find out if an organization is a registered charity in Canada. The site is here.
