Foreign Funding Reported by Alberta Charities

On July 30, 2021, Commissioner Steve Allan submitted his final report of the Inquiry into Anti-Alberta Energy Campaigns to Alberta Energy Minister Sonya Savage. Minister Savage has until the end of October to release the report publicly. The Commissioner’s mandate includes investigating, “…the role of foreign funding, if any, in anti-Alberta energy campaigns.”

In our November 2019 submission to the Inquiry, we included a table showing the number of Alberta charities reporting any foreign funding on their annual returns (T-3010s) during their 2016 fiscal year, and the amounts received, by type of charity. We have now done the same for the 2018 and 2019. We believe that by sharing this information we are providing some necessary context for the release of the final report.

The tables can be viewed here.
