We charge an additional cost for charity-intention non-profits because their articles of incorporation are different from those of non-profits without a charity intention. The articles for charity intention have more complex structures and legal obligations, which require more extensive work and resources from our team. We believe in providing high-quality services to all our clients, and this additional charge allows us to dedicate the necessary time and attention to ensure that chartered non-profits with a charitable intention are well-supported and legally compliant. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to working with you to achieve your charitable goals.

Federal Non-profit Corporation refers to a type of organization that is incorporated under the federal laws of Canada, specifically the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (CNCA). It is a legal structure that allows non-profit organizations to operate and carry out their activities at a national level across various provinces and territories in Canada.
Here are some key points regarding a federal non-profit corporation and its required information:
1. Purpose: The primary purpose of a federal non-profit corporation is to engage in activities that are beneficial to the public or a specific segment of society. Non-profit organizations typically pursue charitable, educational, religious, social, or environmental objectives.
2. Incorporation Process: To become a federal non-profit corporation, the organization must follow the incorporation process outlined in the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (CNCA). This process involves submitting specific information and documents to Corporations Canada, the federal agency responsible for overseeing federal non-profit corporations.
3. Required Information: When incorporating as a federal non-profit corporation, certain information is typically required, including:
– Name of the corporation: The organization must choose a unique and suitable name that complies with the naming regulations outlined in the CNCA.
– Purpose and activities: A clear statement of the organization’s purpose and the activities it intends to undertake.
– Registered office address: The physical address where the corporation’s records and official communications will be maintained.
– Governing structure: Details about the board of directors or trustees responsible for managing the corporation, including their names, addresses, and positions.
– By-laws: The by-laws are the internal rules and regulations that govern the corporation’s operations, decision-making processes, and other organizational matters.
– Membership information: If the corporation has members, details about the membership structure and rights.
4. Legal Obligations: Once incorporated, federal non-profit corporations have ongoing legal obligations, including maintaining proper records and filing annual reports with Corporations Canada. These reports provide updates on the corporation’s activities, directors, and registered office address.
5. Tax Exemptions: Federal non-profit corporations may also be eligible for tax exemptions as per the provisions of the Income Tax Act. To benefit from tax exemptions, organizations must meet specific criteria and apply for charitable status with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
