Robert Henry Winters (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Revenue)

Liberal

Mr. WINTERS:

There is no master list presently available of the numerous charitable organizations in Canada. Each income tax district has its own which is constantly changing since some of the organizations recognized are purely temporary. It is practically impossible to compile or keep up to date a list of the charitable organizations to which donations are deductible under the terms and provisions of subsections (lMj) and (l)(jj) of section (5) of the Income War Tax Act. The following national organizations appear amongst the major charities recognized under this section:

1. Canadian Red Cross Society.

2. Canadian Paraplegic Association.

3. The Canadian Legion of the British Empire Service League.

4. Canadian Appeal for Children; United Nations Appeal for Children.

5. War Amputations of Canada.

6. Canadian National Institute for the Blind.

7. Victorian Order of Nurses.

8. Canadian Tuberculosis Association.

9. Salvation Army.

10. Boy Scouts Association.

Religious institutions, public hospitals, schools and universities.

It might be stated that in general exemptions extend and apply to all donations made to organizations in Canada whose sole objects and purposes are the relief of poverty or the advancement of religion or education.
