The T3010 DATA USERS RESEARCH GROUP is a group of interested individuals who want to share information about the T3010 data. T3010 form is the Registered Charity Information Return under the supervision of Charities Directorate, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It is operated on a voluntary basis. Since 2011, members of the T3010 Data Users Research Group have regular discussion by teleconference on different challenges associated with the use of T3010 data. The interests of the members of the T3010 data users group are wide ranging in terms of applicability, but are also focused on a) having access to a common data set that would provide a basis for comparative research; b) identifying the incidence of errors and oversights which could be addressed, either by CRA or researchers; c) identifying gaps in T3010 data which prevents research from taking place; and d) engaging in collaborative research.

Le GROUPE DE RECHERCHE DES UTILISATEURS DES DONNÉES DE LA T3010 est un groupe d’individus intéressés à partager de l’information sur les données de la T3010. Le formulaire T3010 est la Déclaration de renseignements des organismes de bienfaisance sous la supervision de la Direction des organismes de bienfaisance, Agence de revenu de Canada (ARC). Il s’agit d’un groupe fonctionnant sur base volontaire. Depuis 2011, les membres du Groupe de recherche des utilisateurs des données de la T3010 ont des rencontres régulières via téléconférence relativement à divers défis associés à l’utilisation des données de la T3010. Les intérêts des membres du groupe sont variés, mais visent a) l’accès à une base de données communes pouvant permettre des recherches comparatives; b) l’identification de l’incidence des erreurs qui pourrait être revues ou corrigées, soit par l’ARC ou les chercheurs; c) l’identification des brêches dans les données de la T3010 prévenant des recherches; et d) l’engagement de recherches collaboratives.
