|Description of service(s)||The Charities Directorate of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) registers charities, Canadian amateur athletic associations, and other qualified donees; gives technical advice on operating a charity; and handles audit and compliance activities.

The Charities Directorate also:
• provides general information to the public about registered charities;
• handles requests for public documents such as a registered charity's annual information return and/or financial statements; and
• provides donors with information on how to donate wisely.
