Canada: New BC Societies Act Roundtable – November 9, 2016
Last Updated: November 9 2016

The new BC Societies Act will come into force on November 28, 2016, introducing major changes to the incorporation, membership and governance of societies in BC.

All BC societies must transition to the new act prior to November 28, 2018 or risk being dissolved by the Registrar. Although societies have two years to complete this transition, the new act will apply to all societies as soon as it comes into force. Therefore, you should be familiar and ensure compliance with the provisions now to avoid having unenforceable bylaws or having to repeat any approval processes carried out under a society's current processes that do not conform to the new act.
