Maintaining a Financially Healthy Not-for-Profit

The legal and regulatory environment within which all not-for-profit organizations operate in Canada can be a complex and confusing - albeit necessary - component of effective organization management. The same regulations which make it possible to provide much needed services and programs on a tax-free basis with access to funding also create their own reporting, registration and governance isses for not-for-profit organizations.

In this full-day, interactive workshop, you’ll be introduced to many concepts within the world of regulation and legal matters, to help you identify key considerations which are applicable to your own organization, including:

  • The regulation of charities
  • The advantages of forming a co-operative enterprise
  • The legal context of creating a social enterprise
  • A comprehensive handbook filled with a case study, check
  • list, self assessment test, articles and an annotated list of web and print resources.

Co-hosted by Vancity and United Community Services Co-op. For more information see Financial Fitness Workshops.
