10 November, 2015

BC Societies Act Project1:30pm - 3:00pm Pacific Time

If your group files an annual report with Victoria as a ‘BC Society’, then it must actively migrate to the new legislation. The new BC Societies Act requires organizations to comply within a specified timeframe.

This fall, the BC Ministry of Finance will release the regulations that will accompany the new legislation.

Within these regulations will be a ‘coming into force date’. The Ministry’s most recent estimate is that this date will likely be in the fall of 2016. BC’s 27,000 affected organizations will be required to actively migrate to the new Act within two years of this date, with most elements of the new Act applying on the coming into force date.

Join Stacey Corriveau, Executive Director of the BC Centre for Social Enterprise; and Richard Bridge, charity and non-profit lawyer with decades of experience, for an informative 90-minute webinar that will outline how the new BC Societies Act will affect you and how to prepare. 

The BC Societies Act webinar will:

  • review highlights of the new Act
  • help you identify the specific areas that affect your organization
  • equip your leadership with the knowledge and skills needed to efficiently and confidently move your organization through this process
  • provide informational handouts and a transition checklist to help keep you organized
