Currencies, countries, international payments and taxes

  • The contribution levels indicate minimum amounts in "$", but it is not clear if these are Canadian or US dollars (not the same rate) ! Please specify {{USD|value}} or {{CAD|value}}
  • And exactly to whom the amounts will be billed (an account of the Foundation in US, or a special account for the conference organizers in Canada ?) This may have importance about taxes to pay, or tax-exemption benefits (additionally there are laws requiring tracking the usage of money for financing advertizing and promotional campaigns, against money laundry, fiscal evasion, or political financement and corruption: this must be extremely clear, before paying anything). For now there's absolutely no precision about the legal status of these payments to participate.

  • The receiver of any sponsorship is the Comité Wikimania Montréal, a non-profit corporation founded with a charter to organise the event. Any remaining assets (not that there is an expectation of there being any of significance) will devolve to the WMF.  ­– Coren(talk) 00:41, 16 February 2017 (UTC)Reply
  • Apologies for any confusion, but any funds for sponsorships will be made to the Wikimedia Foundation--EYoung (WMF) (talk) 17:06, 12 April 2017 (UTC)Reply
