Notice of Annual General Meeting

Notice of Annual General Meeting

Special Resolution

The YMCA-YWCA was formed under the Society Act (British Columbia). In November of 2016, that legislation was fully replaced by the Societies Act (British Columbia) (the “New Act”). All societies registered under the prior legislation are required to ‘transition’ to the New Act before November 16, 2018. In order to transition, a society is required to re-file its constitution and bylaws with the corporate registry in BC. Prior to transitioning, each society is required to (i) update its Constitution so that it removes matters that are now covered by bylaws under the New Act; and (ii) update its bylaws to include any amendments that are now contemplated and allowed by the New Act. The New Act is a modernized version of the old legislation, with several updates that provide more flexibility and align the legislation with the laws governing corporations.

The YMCA-YWCA has determined that, in addition to the matters required to transition the society to the New Act, it is prudent to take this opportunity to update the bylaws of the organization to reflect common operational and communication practice, and to update the bylaws to reflect provisions now introduced by the New Act.
