Every year Blumbergs has its Blumbergs’ Canadian Charity Law Institute.  This year we will be doing a “mini-institute” – very virtual, much shorter and more affordable but covering a number of topics that are of concern to Canadian charities.  So please join us on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, for the 9th Blumbergs’ Canadian Charity Law Insititute.  Registration and introductions will begin at 12:30PM EST and the Institute will run until 4PM EST.

We will be covering a number of different topics tentatively including the following:

  • Charities Directorate: Navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and the way forward Tony Manconi, Director General, Charities Directorate of the CRA
  • State of the Sector and Impact of COVID, Mark Blumberg, Blumberg Segal LLP
  • ONCA update, Lynn Gluckman, Blumberg Segal LLP
  • CNCA update – What is new this year with COVID and maintaining a CNCA corporationColeen Kirby, Corporations Canada, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada 
  • The We Charity Controversy, Mark Blumberg, Blumberg Segal LLP

  • Transparency – a little effort can save you a lot of time and headaches, Mark Blumberg
  • Political activities and Lobbyist registration, Mark Blumberg

It will be a half-day of practical legal and ethical compliance information geared toward charities, professional advisors and those interested in regulatory issues affecting charities and the non-profit sector.    The price is $75 for the day.   Here is the tentative Agenda for the Blumbergs’ Charity Law Institute 2020.
