How are Canadian eTax receipts issued for recurring donations?

Recurring donors will automatically receive an annual eTax Receipt for all monthly/quarterly donations made throughout the year. It is emailed out in February, in time for tax season.

The receipts will list each individual donation as a separate line item, with the total amount displayed as the “Eligible amount of gift for tax purposes”. The email that is sent along with the tax receipt will be a generic one, as follows:

Subject: Your etax receipt for your 2019 contributions
