Policies-on-the-web reflect changes to the Co-op Act

Has your co-op modified its Rules yet to comply with recent changes to the Co-op Act? CHF BC has produced a template that member co-ops can use to make the minimum changes required by the Act. Don’t forget you need to provide 14 days notice of the general meeting to approve the special resolution. We will also be rolling out a completely new set of Rules when we release our highly anticipated Model Rules 2.0 for members, coming later this fall.

In the meantime, we've also updated our online Policy Manual so that it reflects the changes to the Act. You’ll find a revised arrears policy in the Finance policy section, and revised tools in the Resources – Finance section.

If you have any questions, please contact Sue Moorhead at or 604-879-5111 (1-866-879-5111) ext. 136.
