This paper extends Kitchen’s (1992) study on the determination of Canadian charitable giving by using an updated 2010 dataset. We have identified potential factors that could have affected the amount of monetary donations to religious, non-religious and all charities. We have found that a change in the price of giving or a change in the household size will significantly affect non-religious giving but not religious giving. It was also found that Atlantic Canadians contribute comparatively less in both religious and non-religious giving than the rest of the country.
