    Demystifying Charities, Not-For-Profits and Social Enterprises

    • What is the difference between a charity and a not-for-profit corporation?
    • Can a charity start a social enterprise?
    • Do I have personal liability as a director for a charity?
    • Do employees at a charity have the same protections as employees at for-profit companies?
    • Can I get a tax receipt for donating my goods or services to a charity?
    • What is Ontario’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (“ONCA”)?

    If you have any questions you would like to submit to the SkyLaw team, please do so before Wednesday, June 15.  Each person who submits a question and attends the event will be entered into a draw for a small yet fabulous door prize!
