Non-profit, Foundation and Charity Law
Ethos’ lawyers are committed to working with clients who are purpose-driven; we understand the special needs and concerns of not-for-profit entities. We have assisted with all aspects of legal work for both BC societies and federally-incorporated not-for-profits. Mary can help if you are setting up your entity and need assistance with drafting your constitution and bylaws; she can also advise on the legal requirements of applications for charitable status. If your entity has been struck from the register, Mary also has experience in the restoration of societies.
The law which regulates not-for-profit entities is in many ways significantly different from the law which regulates profit-driven corporations. Ethos’ lawyers understand the differences and have the knowledge, expertise and commitment needed to help you avoid the legal pitfalls of failure to comply with these laws.
