SOCIETY ACT TRANSITION - Info
Are you involved with a Non Profit society, or know someone who is?
The new Societies Act, which governs registered non-profit societies in British Columbia, came into effect on November 28, 2016. The new act includes a number of updates to allow for more flexibility in how societies operate, while still protecting the public interest. The act allowed for a two-year transition period for registered non-profit societies in BC to become compliant.
The Pacific Legal Education and Outreach Society (PLEO) developed a project to offer resources and mentorship during the transition period, to assist non-profit groups in various areas of the province with reviewing and updating their Constitution and Bylaws to become compliant with the new act.
In The East and West Kootenay regions, two Society Act Transition Hubs were created to help present the facilitated meetings and materials, and to help societies in their area better access these resources. These hubs were funded by the Trust and created in partnership with the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council, Selkirk College and College of the Rockies.
Your society should have filed your transition application by November 28, 2018 to remain in good standing. If a society fails to complete the Transition Application by November 28, 2018 the Registrar may issue a Notice of Commencement of Dissolution as per Section 214 (1)(b) of the Act.
