The Workshop: There are more than 27,000 non-profit societies in BC, providing services and programs that touch virtually every citizen. All pre-existing BC societies need to transition to the new BC Societies Act. The Act includes many significant changes. There is a two-year transition period by which time all societies in BC will have to have filed a transition application. This workshop will provide your society with the information it needs help you decide to make any bylaw or policy changes necessary in order to transition effectively by the deadline of November 28, 2018.

This Workshop is open to any type of non-profit Society operating within the catchment area of the Columbia Basin, and has been financially supported by the Columbia Basin Trust to keep the fee affordable.
