Yes. The Canada Revenue Agency states that:

Registered charities are charitable organizations, public foundations, or private foundations that are created and resident in Canada. They must use their resources for charitable activities and have charitable purposes that fall into one or more of the following categories: The relief of poverty, the advancement of education, the advancement of religion, or other purposes that benefit the community.[1]

PCC-affiliated pregnancy care centres serve within this charitable capacity as they compassionately care for the vulnerable. Centres use their resources for charitable activities, benefit the communities they serve, and add value to our society.

Over the past 24 years, PCC-affiliated centres have provided support for over 190,000 clients across Canada. The cumulative charitable and economic impact is significant.
