OTTAWA – In the wake of continuing media coverage concerning the Canadian Revenue Agency’s decision to revoke Little League Canada’s charitable status, the Canadian Federation of Amateur Baseball (Baseball Canada) would like to issue this official statement. In order to maintain the trust and confidence of our members, the sport community and the public in general, Baseball Canada would like to reaffirm that we are a separate entity from Little League Canada. Baseball Canada is the National Sport Organization recognized by the federal government and our charitable status remains in good standing.
Ray Carter, President of Baseball Canada, would like to ensure Canadians do not misunderstand this situation. “It’s unfortunate to hear about the recent news regarding Little League Canada but our organization is separate from theirs and we want to make sure Canadians know it. We will continue to work to develop the great game of baseball as we have done so since 1964.”
