This module produces CRA compliant Tax Receipts. It's currently housed in the Drupal Sandbox: http://drupal.org/sandbox/semperit/1289724 - lots of development on its way to include more features and to bring it up to the level of a full Drupal project with stable releases for both D6/D7 and a variety of CiviCRM versions. After these releases future development will focus on making this into a CiviCRM extension.
