In May, the BC Societies Act was passed into law, with the accompanying legislation expected to be released next month. This will impact 27,000 organizations in BC: about half are charities, and the other half are non-profit organizations. If folks are filing an annual report with Victoria as a ‘BC Society’ then their group will be affected.
The BC Centre for Social Enterprise will be offering webinar support to representatives of BC Societies who wish to have more information about the new legislation; and to understand how to actively transition to the new BC Societies Act. The sessions will delivered by charity lawyer Richard Bridge.
We are offering two November dates for the session (a weekday and weekend day, to accommodate schedules); and the online registration platform is now ready. The cost is $50+GST per organization.
