New Societies Act requires changes to our Unit’s constitution

The Societies Act came into effect November 28, 2016 and governs how societies (not-for-profit corporations) are created and run in BC. The Act includes significant updates to allow for more flexibility in how societies operate, while still protecting the public interest.

In order to comply with the new Societies Act we need to amend our Constitution and Bylaws. Our new Constitution and Bylaws requires approval by a special resolution at our 2018 Annual General Meeting. Below are links to our draft Bylaws & Constitution, with changes highlighted in blue.

We encourage all members to attend the AGM on February 18 to vote on this and other issues.

Constitution – Unit 431

Bylaws – Unit 431
