Canadian Red Cross Society

Under the War Charters Regulation Act, the Canadian Red Cross Society and all its branches are a registered organization. The Act makes it illegal for anyone unaffiliated with the Red Cross to use the words ‘Red Cross’ in their appeals, and any such fundraisers or monetary collections must first obtain a permit and file it with the police authorities.
