NEW SOCIETIES ACT
There are more than 27,000 non-profit societies in British Columbia. All of these organizations must “transition” to BC's new Societies Act following its proclamation later this year.
The new Societies Act came into effect on Nov. 28, 2016. BC Registry has prepared two Guides for the Transition: 'Preparing for B.C.'s New Societies Act: A Guide to the Transition Process', and 'Filing Guide: How to file a Transition Application in Societies Online'
Pacific Legal Education and Outreach has created Societies Act Transition Hubs to support smaller and rural non-profit societies.
