Not-for-Profit and Charitable Organization in the Health Sector: Evolving Governance & Compliance Issues (Archived Video Stream) 

Apr. 8, 2013
Toronto Online

This is the archived version of a program presented on April 8, 2013. 

Ensure you are fully up to date on the numerous changes impacting health sector charities and not-for-profit organizations and completely understand your new and continuing obligations.

In the last year and a half, The Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act was proclaimed in force (October 17, 2011), the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act received Royal Assent (October 25, 2010) and is scheduled to be proclaimed in force on July 1, 2013 and the Canada Revenue Agency released a fundraising guidance. Public sector salary restraint and accessibility standards are continuing in force and privacy issues in health sector fundraising are also persisting.

Watch this critical session to gain the knowledge and tools you need to advise health sector not-for-profit and charitable organizations about preparing for the new legislative schemes and meeting ongoing compliance obligations.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from leading health and charity law practitioners.
