The group also produced an annual pre-Christmas list of top toys and books.
But last year the volunteer-run organization did not operate its toy testing program or produce its annual list because of what it described as funding challenges.
In a news release Tuesday, the organization said it had been under financial stress for several years.
Canada Revenue Agency filings for the council show the organization's revenue was cut in half from 2011 to 2012, to $52,328 from $98,743, and the group could not recover. The council reported revenue of $46,101 in 2014.
