Charity Law, Policy, and Ethics: Important Changes and Reminders

Join us for a 1-day in-person symposium that will feature leading experts and practitioners from across Canada. We will discuss the new qualifying disbursement rules, changes to the disbursement quota, new Canada Revenue Agency guidance, donor advised funds, anti-terrorism, and issues related to professionalism and legal ethics. We will also hear from the Canada Revenue Agency’s Charities Directorate. We look forward to learning and networking with all of you in-person!
