Applications are now open to become a member of the Advisory Committee on the Charitable Sector. The ACCS is a consultative forum for the Government of Canada to engage in meaningful dialogue with the charitable sector, advance emerging issues related to charities, and ensure the regulatory environment supports the important work that charities do. The ACCS is made up of volunteers from the charitable sector, who provide advice and recommendations to the Minister of National Revenue and Commissioner of the CRA on important issues facing charities. As the terms of six currently-serving members come to an end, the Minister of National Revenue will be looking to appoint new charitable sector members. New members will serve a two-year term. The CRA strives to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion and encourages applications from a broad cross-section of experts, practitioners, leaders from the not-for-profit and private sectors, as well as members of various groups, including women, LGBTQ2+ communities, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities.
There are two steps to the application process, both of which must be completed by June 3, 2022 (23:59 ET):
- Mail or fax your application to the Charities Directorate.
- Email the Charities Directorate with the subject line “ACCS membership applications” to express your interest in the process so that we may confirm receipt of your application when we receive it by mail or fax. Do not send personal information or your application by email.
If you want to make a difference in the charitable sector in Canada and provide recommendations to the Minister of National Revenue and Commissioner of the CRA, visit our website and apply today.
