The CRA strives to ensure that only organizations meeting the requirements are registered. While most organizations operate within the rules, the CRA cannot fully monitor every one, and changing circumstances in an organization's operations may affect its continued eligibility for registration. Registration should not be viewed as proof of an organization's credibility. The CRA encourages donors to learn more about donating wisely.Note: this link will load in another window or tab
