Being Good at Doing Good: Safeguarding Yourself and Your Charity in a Complex World
The charitable sector is a large and important part of Canada’s economy and society. Every year, millions of Canadians are engaged in the good that our sector does in communities all across the country.
In today’s rapidly-changing world, however, managing charities effectively is becoming increasingly complex. From transparency to taxation, abuse to accountability, leaders in the charitable sector today need to be more engaged, more involved, and more careful than ever before.
That’s why the Charity Law Information Program has organized this groundbreaking conference, supported by the Canada Revenue Agency, to help you maximize your organization’s effectiveness and prevent your resources from being misused.
We’re bringing together leaders in the field, law-makers, experts, and representatives of charities just like yours for an exciting series of sessions aimed at the key issues all charitable organizations are facing today.
