New information hubs are now available in the East and West Basin to help non-profits with transitioning to the new Societies Act. The Societies Act Transition Hubs have trained mentors who offer guidance and consultation, and deliver facilitated workshops to support the transition process.
The new Societies Act came into effect on November 28, 2016, and non-profit societies have two years to update their constitution and by-laws to comply.
For more information on the hubs, to access online resources (coming soon) and to sign up for email updates from the Hubs, click here. The Trust has partnered with Law For Non-Profits (LFNP) to create and offer this service to non-profits in the Columbia Basin region.
Additional resources on the new Societies Act are available at ourtrust.org/npa.
