Nonprofit Law for Unincorporated Groups

Are you a grassroots group or individual thinking about incorporating as a nonprofit? Just like anything worthwhile, starting a nonprofit requires critical thinking, commitment, patience, and a lot of hard work. You might also decide that incorporation is not for you. 

In this session, Benjamin Miller, a staff lawyer at Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO) will:

  • Walk you through some of the rules that apply to unincorporated groups

  • Introduce you to different legal structures and statuses along with their pros and cons

  • Take you through the steps to incorporate if that's the path you choose

TARGET AUDIENCE: Individuals and/or groups located in Ontario that are NOT incorporated and want to learn more about incorporation and/or other avenues

NOTE: This webinar will be recorded.
