Societies Act Consultation

The BC Government is conducting a consultation on proposed amendments to the Societies Act.  Over the past two-and-a-half years, the government has been monitoring how the new Act has been working for societies.

Based on feedback, proposed amendments have been developed to address the issues that have come to light.

Related amendments to the Business Corporations Act and the Cooperative Association Act are also being proposed.

Please see the letter from the Deputy Minister of Finance and appendix of proposed amendments.  Further information about the consultation can be found on the government’s website.

We invite and encourage you to provide feedback on the proposed amendments.  Please invite others who may wish to contribute to do so as well.

The deadline for feedback is August 23, 2019.
