33 U.S. states have adopted legislation creating benefit corporations – a type of for-profit corporate entity whose mandate includes positive impacts on society. In 2018, Bill no. M 216, Business Corporations Amendment Act, 2018 proposed that British Columbia would become the first jurisdiction in Canada to adopt the benefit company.  The Bill was tabled for further consultation and discussion, and will be reintroduced into the Legislative Assembly.

Join us in welcoming Sarah Fitzpatrick for a discussion of the role that benefit companies may play in the Canadian legal system, with an overview of the history of benefit corporations, the current jurisprudence of directors’ responsibilities, and the proposed legislation.
