Charities, Churches and

We appreciate the unique needs and goals of non-profit organizations.

We serve a wide variety of organizations that are involved in non-profit and charitable work within Canada and internationally. Included in this practice is acting as advisors to a wide range of church and para-church organizations.

We understand that, as a non-profit or charitable organization, you need legal counsel with a strong appreciation of the business issues you face, but also with a sensitivity and understanding of your unique goals and objectives. From the initial structuring of a new organization to charitable gift planning and dealings with Canada Revenue Agency, we have extensive experience and knowledge to help your organization in a wide range of matters, including:

  • Corporate planning and governance issues
  • Resolving membership and other disputes
  • Dealing with employment and human rights matters
  • Preparing facility use agreements
  • Joint venture, agency, and contract for services agreements
  • Drafting internal policies
  • Highly sensitive matters such as allegations of sexual abuse

We frequently present seminars and write articles on recent legal developments affecting charities and other non-profit entities.
