Did you know that our freedom of speech is under threat?

Published on 


Ambiguous, obsolete and unfair laws governing charities are actually silencing many of them. These NGOs, who are working to influence public policy in your name, are experiencing costly audits of their political activities by the Canada Revenue Agency. Corporations, on the other hand, can spend freely on lobbying, advertising and any other political activity and can deduct 100% of those expenses from their income.


Équiterre and several partners are inviting you to send a letter to the federal government until December 9th, if you want Canadian charities to keep on playing a role in shaping, on your behalf, public policies that improve our lives. We must ask for a reform of Canadian law to ensure that charities can speak out!
