On August 7th, Mark Blumberg – an expert in Canadian philanthropy – gave a talk to the members of RACI regarding how philanthropy works in Canada, what are the different work options for an organization and how you can work with a foreign organization.

One of the available tools to explore these possibilities is the website This site is part of a network of websites managed by the law firm Blumbergs, based in Toronto, Canada, recognized for providing legal advice to nonprofit associations and information to foreign associations that are interested in operating or raising funds in Canada. is a platform responsible for providing information on charitable associations based in Canada, as revealed by those organizations in their annual statements to the Canadian State. From this platform, users can identify the different Canadian organizations by their name, type of organization, income and location.

In addition, one can identify which organizations receive more money and have the greatest expenditure abroad. Among these first five are World Vision Canada, MasterCard Foundation, Plan International Canada, Care Canada and International Development Research Centre.
