All non-profit societies utilize governance documents to help conduct their business. In accordance with the BC Societies Act, all societies must have a Constitution and Bylaws that mandate the purposes of the society, membership, elections, and more. Societies also use policies to help expand on the Constitution and Bylaws. Other documents that are important to governance include such legislation as the Societies Act, the Universities Act, the BC Human Rights Code, and the Personal Information Protection Act. Please see below for SFPIRG’s governance documents, as well as links to some of the applicable legislation.
