Canada Revenue Agency

Several conferences have contacted us about the letter from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) concerning the new Canada not-for-Profit Corporations Act (NFP Act). Note that this letter was sent to all charities in Canada, whether incorporated under a federal law or not. So the fact of receiving this type of letter does not mean in itself that the charity does not comply. Only the National Council of Canada is incorporated nationally. Conferences do not have to send documents to the CRA regarding this application.

Spiritual reflection for September

A new spiritual reflection is available in the "Spirituality" section.

Reflect on the following in light of the family, home, neighbourhood, parish, city, region, province, country and finally the world preferably in a conference/council setting. Share and discuss your thoughts and insights perhaps this may lead to new ways of rendering service and ultimately to systemic change.

Allow The Lord to speak to you from outside the box of conventional wisdom and traditional thought with regards to the standard secular definition and understanding of what is hunger, thirst, alienation, nakedness, sickness and imprisonment and the consequent solutions thereof. Be open to a completely new approach quite at odds with the way man usually evaluates these things.
