Non Profit

non profit
administration + governance

Our non-profit clients have a special place in our heart.  We love putting law to work for our community to support the good work that charities and non-profit organizations contribute.

We can't do everything for a non-profit client, but we can advise on business operation, human resources and governance matters.  Please visit our business and employment law pages for details on our offerings.  Our clients like our personal approach and our competitive rates.  

Where we are unable to help (tax, fundraising, finance and dissolution or amalgamation matters) we know who can.

Board of Director Relations

We enjoy clients who enjoy active and engaged boards.  We assist with member recruitment, succession planning, defining roles and responsibilities and building board policies, codes of conduct and bylaws.  We can draft motions and resolutions to ensure corporate compliance, and help the board with strategic planning and operational success.

Committee & Volunteer Work

We know that your organization's committees and volunteers do much of the heavy lifting.  We can help draft terms of reference and provide subject matter advice to assist the work of your personnel and governance committees.  We can also help ensure that your non-profit is meeting its commitments to volunteers and staff.

Meetings & Governance

Productive, efficient and enjoyable board and committee meetings are so important to keeping your volunteer members on board.  We can help with planning, creating necessary motions and resolutions and building your board decks to help guide your meeting and evaluate board performance to ensure good governance.
