On behalf of the Canadian Bar Association, we congratulate the publisher of the Canadian Donor’s Guide on this
twenty-sixth edition of the publication. The Canadian Donor’s Guide continues to be a useful service for our
members and for the many worthy charities seeking contributions.
Once again, the Canadian Donor’s Guide is being provided free of charge to lawyers and notaries who are members of the Canadian Bar Association’s Wills, Estates & Trusts Section, Charities and Not-for-Profit Law Section,
Taxation Law Section and the Small, Solo and General Practice Forum.
We are sure you will agree that the Canadian Donor’s Guide is a useful source of information for your practice.
It provides clients with up-to-date information and insight about a variety of worthwhile causes to support. It is
also an important resource for you to refer to when assisting clients in your practice area.
Please note that the publisher of the Canadian Donor’s Guide does not certify that all charities featured in the
Guide are duly registered with the Canada Revenue Agency. You are therefore advised to verify charitable status
with the Canada Revenue Agency as you deem appropriate.
We hope you will enjoy this year’s guide.
