CCBC Articles of Continuance and By-laws
On October 17, 2011 the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (the “New Act”) came into effect. Corporations incorporated under the Canada Corporations Act, such as CCBC, have three years from such date to continue under the New Act. To accomplish the continuance, corporations must have their members approve Articles of Continuance (which set out the corporate purposes of the corporation, among other basic corporate information) and then submit the Articles to Industry Canada for certification. It is also recommended as part of this process that corporations update their operating by-laws so that they conform with the terms of the New Act.
Accordingly, CCBC has prepared Articles of Continuance and has revised its operating By-laws. It is intended that these documents be approved by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. The draft By-laws and Articles of Continuance are available for download below. Should any members wish to receive paper copies of the Articles and By-laws, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to place such a request. The Board and Management of CCBC very much look forward to taking this significant step forward with you, our membership.
