Few claim Ottawa’s new ‘super’ tax credit for first time charity donors

A new “super” tax credit meant to encourage Canadians to make a charitable donation for the first time appears to be less effective than hoped, with a first year take-up that was only 20 per cent of what Ottawa expected… Michelle Gauthier, Imagine Canada’s vice-president of public policy and community engagement, notes that estimates have previously stated that about 590,000 Canadians would be eligible for such a credit. Her organization is encouraged that a solid percentage of them have already contributed. (Globe and Mail)
