    In this web article, Ted Hyland of law firm Iler Campbell LLP comments on the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) July 2013 policy guidance on how to draft purposes clauses for charitable registration.

The author gives examples of how this might be achieved and may be helpful to Ontario charities thinking of submitting new articles to CRA as a result of the ONCA.
