Strong Charities. Strong Communities.

Political Activities

Charities play a vital role in public policy issues, speaking up for communities and people that otherwise might not be heard. A great deal of this work — meeting with politicians or officials, submitting written briefs, or making presentations to public tribunals — counts as charitable activity and is not restricted. Some of it, particularly when a charity makes a public appeal or encourages grassroots action, is classified as political activity — meaning there are limits to how much of it a charity can do.
