The Societies Act came into effect November 28, 2016 and governs how societies (not-for-profit corporations) are created and run in B.C. The Act includes significant updates to allow for more flexibility in how societies operate, while still protecting the public interest.
Many thanks to our ‘By-law Task Force’ lead by Tina Wilson, who have spent many many many hours ensuring our constitution and by-laws are updated and ensured our compliance with the new act.
Below you will find a copy of the DRAFT version of our new Constitution and by-laws. This will be bought to the AGM on Tuesday February 28th 2017 by special resolution. It has been added here so you all have time to read and digest prior to the AGM.
