Throne Speech - Mission Continued

Today the Governor General opened parliament with the Throne Speech. CBC has provided the text of Governor General Clarkson's speech.

Governor General Adrienne Clarkson said on behalf of the government:
What makes our communities strong is the willingness of men and women from all walks of life to take responsibility for their future and for one another. We can see this in the number of voluntary organizations and social economy enterprises that are finding local solutions to local problems. The Government is determined to foster the social economy—the myriad not-for-profit activities and enterprises that harness civic and entrepreneurial energies for community benefit right across Canada. The Government will help to create the conditions for their success, including the business environment within which they work. To that end, it will introduce a new Not-for-Profit Corporations Act.

The speech continues the direction set with the Feb 2 Throne Speech. So we look forward to the "Not-for-Profit Corporations Act", here are some thoughts expressed by the firm Miller Thomson.

This is PLEA's (Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan) published view of Non-Profit Corporations**.
