“Time to Get Organized”

February 5 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

To receive the materials from this workshop, please contact Michelle Nguyen, PIP Officer at [email protected]

People often come together to respond to a common need. Such informal groups can accomplish amazing things but can do so much more when they become more formally organized.

This hour-long workshop will explore the advantages of incorporation and decisions needed around Not-For-Profit versus Profit; incorporating provincially or federally; and Charitable Tax Status.

The workshop will focus on the incorporation process including Name Search, developing Articles of Incorporation/ Constitution, By-laws, and the resources needed to “get organized.”

Format: Hybrid (in person at the New Canadians Centre and online via Zoom; Zoom link will be emailed the day before the event)
