Society Act Changes

The new British Columbia Societies Act comes in to effect on November 28, 2016. There are a number changes and a timelime for Societies to make those changes. Your Society's consitution and bylaws may need amending and you will need to determine if your Society is member funded. You may want to contact your Society's legal advisor to ensure the new act is complied with. In some situations, additional disclosures may need to be made in the financial statements of your Society. Contact your HLW accountant for more information on this.
