As of November 28, 2016, all societies registered in British Columbia must transition to the new Societies Act. This transition does not need to be completed until November 28, 2018,
Transition is a complicated way of saying that all Societies in BC must file an electronic version of their bylaws and constitution with the Registrar of Companies. There are also some changes in the new Societies Act, so some mandatory updates to a society’s bylaws and constitution may need to be made. Legal advice on this should be sought.
