Charity and Not For Profit Law

If you are thinking about setting up a not for profit, applying for charitable status or developing a charitable trust, the support of a lawyer can be critical in getting things right from the start and ensuring the continued success of your good cause.

I can help you understand and determine the right direction for your organization—from initial set-up to ongoing governance issues.

I can also provide you with a legal perspective on some of the emerging issues in the sector such as anti-spam legislation, social enterprise and the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act.

Many not-for-profits are exploring how planned giving can contribute to the sustainability of their projects. If this is something your organization is contemplating, I encourage you to get in touch with me so I can help you understand and address the legal issues associated with this.

As an active supporter of many community agencies and having been on the boards of others, I am committed to contributing to the success of the not for profit sector. Contact me if you’d like me to help your organization achieve its goals.
