Primer for Directors of Not for Profit Corporations
For the Canadian voluntary sector, directors’ liability is one of the most quoted and
perhaps least understood issues. In response to this growing concern, Industry Canada has prepared
for directors and officers of not-for-profit corporations.
This user-friendly document provides valuable information in a convenient format to inform
these directors and officers about their duties, rights and liabilities.
The publication was prepared in collaboration with the Canadian
Centre for Philanthropy, the Canadian Bar Association and
the Canadian Society of Association Executives.
