One of the fastest-growing areas of law in Canada is the not-for-profit sector. Non-profit and charitable entities and their boards face legal, compliance, and administrative issues of increasing complexity and risk. The advice of MBZ’s team of lawyers is available to provide non-profit and charitable entities with quality affordable legal advice and services.
Our team is fully-experienced in providing a full range of related services in the charitable sector, including incorporation, obtaining and maintaining charitable status, governance (both CNCA and ONCA), operation of related businesses, facilitating of foreign activities by Canadian charities, funding and donor agreements, gift planning, partnerships, commercial leases, risk management for boards and staff, and assisting with CRA audits.
At MBZ, we understand that legal issues are not the only concern that a charity must address. We therefore are able to provide the non-profit corporation or charity and its board with guidance respecting disruptive concerns such as conflicts, publicity issues, and prioritizing of tasks. We assist in dealing with the media, the public, and with regulators, to ensure that the work and finances of the charity can be focused on its purpose, and not on complications and distractions.
Our team of lawyers in Toronto can assist not only with legal issues relating to Canadian charities, but also foreign charities operating inside Canada. We have a particular expertise with Ukrainian charities and non-profits.
