Building an Ideal Non-Share Corporations Act
Clifford S. Goldfarb, Gardiner Roberts LLP

After decades of seeking reforms to the corporate statutes governing non-profits and charities, lawyers across the country received a mish-mash of statutes, each of which has its merits and demerits. But there is not one statute that stands out as superior to all the rest, and each statute has its often jaw-dropping shortcomings. What would a non-share capital statute look like if it was drafted by the people who actually have to use it – charity and non-profit lawyers?

Participants are encouraged to please send any relevant questions to pd@cba.org.
