CHARITY LAW UPDATE: Operating a non-profit or charity grows more complex by the year. This session will help cut through the complexity by reviewing new court cases, CRA policies and provincial/federal legislation relevant to the non-profit and charitable sectors.
ACCOUNTING UPDATES & SOCIAL ENTERPRISE: Changes in Accounting standards, Government and Canada Revenue Policies, and common mistakes charities and NPOs make will be highlighted. Many charities and NPOs engage in Social Enterprise to support their programs. This session will focus on common pitfalls made, and structures that are used for Social Enterprise — a very timely topic.
