Written by Dierk Ullrich of Fasken Martineau LLP, the British Columbia Societies Guide is the only Societies Act publication in the province developed specifically for lawyers by lawyers. Going beyond being a transition handbook, the British Columbia Societies Guide is a comprehensive practice manual on all aspects of societies under the new legislative regime. Rather than providing an annotated statute, this guide provides topic-by-topic analysis and practical advice for advising societies on matters such as: • the new entities of member-funded societies and extraprovincial non-share corporations • societies’ record-keeping obligations, financial requirements and audit requirements • changes to classes of membership, voting rules and thresholds for special resolutions • the qualifications, liability and indemnification of society directors The British Columbia Societies Guide is available: • as a stand-alone online access publication • as Chapter 18 of our BC Company Law Practice Manual (2016 update), available as a print + online package or as an online access only publication As with all CLEBC online access publications, the British Columbia Societies Guide and the BC Company Law Practice Manual include convenient, on-demand access with search capability, links to the full text of cases and legislation, downloadable forms and precedents, and regular updates.
