For issuing more than $60.7 million in donation receipts for abusive transactions arising from its role as a participant in tax shelter arrangements that, in the opinion of the Minister, do not qualify as gifts, notice is hereby given, pursuant to paragraph 168(1)(d) of the Income Tax Act, that I propose to revoke the registration of the organization listed below. In accordance with subsection 168(2) of the Income Tax Act, the revocation of registration is effective on the date of publication of this notice.
