LawNow: Charity Law Issue

Canadians don’t just donate money to charities, they also create, oversee and staff them. These folks, especially those who run smaller charities, could use some help understanding what the law expects of them. That’s why LawNow has focused its latest issue on charity law.

Charities must transition under the new Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act. Our article “Five Steps to Transition: The Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act” clearly outlines the important steps that charities must now take to comply with the new law.

Have you ever been asked to be a board member? You may feel honored (or obligated), but LawNow’s article, “So You Want to be a Board Member? Think Twice Before You Say Yes “ can provide questions to ask and considerations to make.

Articles on charity law for sports organizations, charity guidelines for SPCAs, and conflicts of interests for board members round out this topic.

The intersection of sports and the law is explored in LawNow’s special report. “International Sport Regulation/Canadian Values: What if they Collide?” examines two high-profile sport cases that illustrate the problems that can arise when Canadian values are not reflected in international sports events. “Brain Injuries: A Shot Across the NHL’s Bow” suggests that a lawsuit about brain injuries by former NFL players should raise concerns for the NHL too.

Our columnists (or as we like to call them, “the usual suspects”) delivered excellent content this issue, covering topics such as human rights law, online law, aboriginal law, and employment law.

Several of these articles can be viewed for free at Subscriptions start at $29.95/year.
