Societies and non-profits are registered under the Society Act of BC. The first step in registering a Society is to get a name approval. This process is much the same as you would for a for-profit business. We recommend that Societies have the designation “Society, Association or Foundation” in their name. The second step is to go through the information provided by the BC Registry Services website then complete the remaining steps required to incorporate a Society.
