Social enterprise is one of the options to help nonprofits improve their financial sustainability. Is your nonprofit interested in (or has already embarked on) a social enterprise?
This free workshop is for nonprofits that do not have charitable status (but do qualify for tax exemption under the Income Tax Act) operating in Alberta interested in starting up a social enterprise/business within their organization.
This workshop will provide an overview of how business activities carried out by nonprofit organizations are treated by the law under different Alberta nonprofit statutes and the Income Tax Act, plus legal and accounting considerations nonprofits engaging in social enterprise need to be aware of. Examples of real-life social enterprise models will be discussed.
The workshop will also include a demo of IntegralOrg’s soon-to-be launched Social Enterprise Legal Structures Toolkit. Participants will have the opportunity to ask specific questions, which will result in learning for the whole group.
