24. Political

24.1 How is the company connected politically on the local, state, and national level?
24.2 List any top management or Board members who hold or have held political positions.

Line  2400 on Section C of the T3010 Return available from the Canada Revenue Agency requires charities to indicate if they were involved in political activities and Line 5030 indicates the amount spent on political activities.

The CRA’s list of Charities – Basic Search and Charity Focus are also great alternative sources.

To identify both internal and external lobbyists you target charity uses, search the Registry of Lobbyists.

Use a Canadian News Search to find out more about the political involvement of management and Board members.
