Previous recipients of gifts from Her Majesty in right of Canada

Charitable organizations outside Canada that received a gift from Her Majesty in right of Canada before January 1, 2013, and were qualified donees are included on the list below.

As a result of changes to the Income Tax Act, the eligibility criteria and the calculation of the validity period of the qualified donee status of these organizations may differ based on the legislation that was in force at the time.

As of January 1, 2012, and throughout the 2012 calendar year, the validity period for these qualified donees is based on a 36-month period. This period starts 12 months before the date that they received their gift from Her Majesty in right of Canada and ends 24 months after the date that their gift was received. This validity period applies to foreign charitable organizations outside Canada that were still qualified donees as of January 1, 2012, as well as those that became qualified donees during 2012. For information about the eligibility criteria for recipients that received their gift during the 2012 calendar year, go to Guidance CG-015, Charitable Organizations Outside Canada that Have Received a Gift from Her Majesty in Right of Canada.

For gifts subject to the measures in place before January 1, 2012, go to Policy Commentary CPC-030, Foreign charities: Requirements for qualified donee status, and Information Circular IC84-3R6, Gifts to Certain Charitable Organizations Outside Canada.
