The Sector Episode 25: Volunteer Canada Broadcast on 24-Oct-2014
The Sector Episode 25: Volunteer Canada – we discuss the recent shooting in Ottawa and how this is a time to make sure we don’t damage civil liberties for a false sense of security. Also, research on the CRA audits comparing left and right leaning charities, plus an interview on Employee Supported Volunteering with Paula Speevak of Volunteer Canada.
Special Event: Facebook Event / Meetup Event
Federal cabinet ministers have called registered charities criminal organizations and terrorist organizations and the government has set aside $13 million for stepped up audits of charity activities by Canada Revenue Agency. This panel explores the effects on charities and their ability to pursue their societal Missions, the “best practices” that charities can pursue to minimize their risk of losing their charitable status, and the implications for society and democracy of the government’s actions. The panel will include a charity lawyer and a researcher whose thesis jump-started a national conversation on these issues. There will be time for questions.
