BC Society Act Reform

The British Columbia government has indicated an intention to bring forward a bill in the Spring 2015 sitting of the provincial legislature to implement society act reform in this province.  This will follow on a variety of stakeholder consultations which have occurred over the last few years, as well as a white paper issued in 2014.   There are approximately 27,000 non-profit legal entities in British Columbia who use the governance regime of the existing society legislation.
