For the approximately 19,000 non-profit organizations and charities in Canada that are federally incorporated, the new Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act is a fundamental change in the legal landscape. The new Act came into force on October 17, 2011, and federally-incorporated foundations have less than three years now to make the transition or face deregistration. Now is the time to familiarize yourself with what this Act will mean to your organization and what steps are required for the transition.
Please join us for a discussion led by Richard Bridge who will provide you with a practical overview of the new Act for directors, staff, and members of those organizations continuing under the new Act. Richard Bridge will also provide some guidance on the key documents that charitable foundations need to prepare—articles of continuance and by-laws.
Who: This session is for senior staff and trustees
Date: April 16, 2013
