Blackline MFDA By-Law No. 1

As of June 23, 2014, the BCSC and the MFDA’s other recognizing regulators did not object to or approved proposed amendments to By-law No. 1 and Articles of Continuance.

The proposed amendments will bring MFDA By-law No. 1 into conformity with the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (the NFPA). The MFDA is required to amend By-law No. 1 and file Articles of Continuance to transition to the NFPA.

The BCSC published the proposed amendments for comment on its website on July 25, 2013 for a 90-day comment period. There were no comment letters. The MFDA revised the proposed amendments to By-law No. 1 pursuant to comments from staff of the recognizing regulators. We attach a blacklined copy of the proposed amendments to By-law No. 1 showing changes made to the version published for comment.
