Do we have access to Taxfiler data through the DLI: <http://www5.statcan.gc.ca/bsolc/olc-cel/olc-cel?catno=17C0010&lang=eng>? My researcher is specifically looking for charitable donor information for Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
Statistics Canada, CANSIM, table 111-0001 will provide the information you are looking from 1997 – 2011. The table is supposed be updated annually and there is no indication that the table has been terminated, so I would assume that at some point in the future the data for 2012 and 2013 will also be available.
Other tables that may be of interest are 111-002 Charitable donors, by age and sex, annual (Number), 1997 to 2011 And 111-003 Charitable donors, by income group, annual (Number), 1997 to 2011.
