About NATO Association of Canada:

NATO Association of Canada (NAOC) promotes knowledge and understanding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Canada and Canada’s role in NATO. It was founded in 1966 as a non-governmental organization. NAOC belongs to the Atlantic Treaty Association (ATA). Through this membership, NAOC has built connections to its sister organizations in NATO member countries and other organizations involved in NATO's programmes. In addition, NAOC helped create and develop the Youth Atlantic Treaty Association (YATA). YATA engages youth in important discussions and makes them aware of Canada's place in the world.

NATO Association of Canada runs fundraising events, conferences, and an internship program. NAOC’s interns publish an article weekly, assist in event organization, and promote the charity through social media. Their research and articles are shared on NAOC’s website. Publications cover the following topics: Canadian armed forces; Canada’s NATO; cybersecurity and information warfare; emerging security; NATO operations; security, trade, and the economy; society, culture, and security; and women in security.

Financial Review:

With $373k in donations in 2016, NATO Association of Canada is a Small charity. Its administrative costs were 6% of revenues, and fundraising costs were 4% of donations. Donations increased significantly in 2016 from 2015: corporate donations by 565%, director donations by 127%, foundation donations by 1055% and individual, student, and charity donations by 241%. These donation increases, coupled with a relatively flat administrative cost, reduced the administrative cost ratio from 17% in 2015. Fundraising costs in 2015 were much lower than other years, but the reason was not provided. For every dollar donated, 90 cents go to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.

NATO Association of Canada has funding reserves of $85k, which can cover program costs for under 3 months. This program coverage indicates a need for funding.

In 2016, the charity did not disclose the number of part-time or full-time staff in its CRA T3010 filings, but stated that total compensation was $34,457.

This charity report is an update that has been sent to NATO Association of Canada for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
