As a result, labour organizations and labour trusts will not have to file reports with the CRA to disclose detailed financial information and information on political, lobbying and other non-labour relations activities, or to make that information publically available. Previously, the CRA waived this reporting requirement for fiscal periods starting on December 31, 2015 and through 2016.

Bill C-4 proposes to repeal the reporting requirements. Bill C-4 has completed second reading in the Senate and is expected to be enacted soon.

Background
The reporting requirements would have placed an obligation on labour organizations and labour trusts to track their activities for fiscal years beginning on or after December 31, 2015. These rules were contentious since there is already legislation in place to ensure that unions make financial information available.
