Beneficial Ownership Registers, Part II - BC Business Corporations Act Amendment to Require Transparency Registers
This meeting is being hosted by the Business Law Section.

Speaker(s): Andrew Avis, Director of Business Organizations, BC Ministry of Finance
Time: Thursday, October 24, 2019 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm (Pacific Time)
Location: Webinar/Teleconference
CPD Hours: 1.00
Please note that this is an estimate of the total hours of CPD that are being offered. Upon the conclusion of the meeting, an assessment will be made as to exactly how many hours will be approved.

The Business Corporations Act has been amended to require non-public BC companies to keep a register, i.e. a list, of "significant shareholders". The Ministry of Finance will provide an overview of the new provisions, as well as guidance on the meaning of certain key terms including “indirect control” and "direct and significant influence". 

The presentation will also canvass applicable exclusions from the requirement to keep a transparency register and, time permitting, key differences between the provisions of these BCBCA requirements and the applicable CBCA rules that recently came into force.
