Database of Registration Info for Canadian Charities

I thought this to be interesting, both on a personal and professional level: List of Canadian Registered Charities. It is a database that allows you to search for charities by name, city, province, postal code, designation, category and registration number.

Records pulled up have links to annual filings for registered charities, including basic financial info. I thought this might be a good way to research a charity for the purpose of personal giving.

Think about it: you get a knock at the door, someone pleads for money, you politely close the door then run and turn on your computer to check out the charity's annual filing....
