Standard for registered charities
The Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) recently launched an interesting initiative concerning the governance and good management practices of charities. Through this initiative, a proposed standard for charities to adhere to voluntarily has been established. We invite you to visit the BNQ Web site to read about the standard. The document is subject to public consultation and the BNQ welcomes your comments.
