Preparing for BC's new Societies Act

The new Societies Act has come into effect on Nov 28, 2016.  In the two years following this date, every pre-existing society will be required to “transition” to the new Act.

Important:  For any clubs considering the “Member-funded” option, please note that Member-funded societies are NOT eligible for Community Gaming Grant funding.

Model Bylaws can be found here.
