Note: Ci reconciled the charity's T3010 filing with its audited financials to allocate expenses to programs, admin, and fundraising. In F2020 and F2019, the charity's T3010 filing did not match the audited financials so Ci allocated the difference to program costs. Ci backed amortization out of program, administrative, and fundraising costs on a pro-rata basis. Please note that at the time of this report, Ci was unable to analyze F2022 financials as the charity's T3010 filing for this year was unavailable.
