One-On-One Support

When you have questions about nonprofit management, governance, or legal issues, IntegralOrg has free services to help.

Every nonprofit comes with its own unique opportunities and challenges. And as a nonprofit leader, you have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders.  If you have a question or issue, a free consultation or legal clinic are good options for finding ideas and solutions.


If you have a question about governance, board functioning, financial or budgeting matters, strategic planning, risk management or any other issue, we are happy to offer our expertise.

Give us a call at 403-910-7279, connect by email, or use the Contact Us form and we will arrange a free phone or virtual consultation with a member of our team.

Legal clinics

The legal aspects of running a nonprofit are complex. In a legal clinic, you can chat with a lawyer with decades of experience in the nonprofit sector about your issue. Legal clinics are free of charge.

Want to know if a legal clinic might be right for your organization? Check out this short video.


Some common issues that we can help with are:

  • Which legislation should we choose for our nonprofit?
  • How do we get charitable status for our organization?
  • How do we incorporate our nonprofit?
  • What policies do we need?
  • Are our bylaws complete? 
  • What is the best legal structure for our social enterprise?

Please Note:

  • Legal clinics are typically scheduled on Thursdays. Depending on volume, your clinic may take up to four weeks to schedule.
  • Clinics are one hour in length. We recommend asking about a single issue per clinic.
  • Clinics are an opportunity to discuss legal issues related to your nonprofit such as those noted above. There are some issues that we are not able to assist with such as HR/Employment issues or litigation.
  • We are able to discuss an issue, but not able to offer specific legal advice. For legal advice, we recommend that you engage a lawyer. If you do need legal advice, we are unable to recommend a lawyer.

Here's how a legal clinic works:

  1. Give us a call at 403-910-7279, connect by email, or use the Contact Us form. Let us know the issue you are facing.
  2. You will speak to IntegralOrg's administrator. She will ask you some clarifying questions to learn more about your issue and arrange a time for your clinic. 
  3. The administrator may ask you to fill out a clinic information form. You will be asked for basic information about your nonprofit - and depending on the issue that you have, you may be asked for some more detailed items like your incorporation documents or bylaws so we can be fully informed and ready to problem-solve when we meet. You can access the clinic information form by clicking the button below.
  4. The lawyer will review your questions and the information and documents you have provided in the form before your clinic.
  5. Clinics are held virtually. You can invite multiple members of your team to the clinic if you wish.
