  CAGP Submission to the Department of Finance:
Recommendations for Changes to the New Estate Administration Rules

CAGP has been an active voice on the issue of the new estate administration rules, set to come into effect in January, 2016.

Under the leadership of our Government Relations Committee, CAGP has made a submission to the Department of Finance to highlight how Canada’s charities will be impacted by the new legislation and to recommend adjustments that would address any challenges charities might be facing as a result. A copy of our submission can be accessed here.

To further inform our members and others in the charitable sector on these changes and the potential impact, we also offered  a free webinar on the topic, which took place on March 23rd. Click here  in order to download the recording and the PDF of the presentation.

If you have further concerns about this new legislation or have accounts of how your charity will be impacted, please write to Ruth MacKenzie, Executive Director of CAGP at and give strength to our voice in discussions with the federal government.
