On June 30, 2014 we reported that the CRTC advised Imagine Canada that there were some ‘inconsistencies’ with the reported interpretation of the fundraising exemption noted in Imagine Canada’s Issue Alert of June 5, 2014.

Imagine Canada advised late on June 30, 2014 that the CRTC will provide clarification in respect of the fundraising exemption available to registered charities on Friday, July 4, 2014.

In addition, Imagine Canada advised that ‘[t]he CRTC has indicated that it is reasonable for charities to await the publication of its FAQ document before determining what additional compliance efforts, if any beyond the exemption granted and the efforts charities have made to date, will be required.’

You can read Imagine Canada’s notice here:

We will continue to monitor this situation and advise on any clarifications to the fundraising exemption, and the application of CASL to registered charities and non-profit organizations as they become available.

If you would like to discuss CASL and how it applies to your organization, please contact Kim Cunnington-Taylor at 613-231-8299 or by e-mail at
