Learning about Benefit Company legislation in BC

Benefit company legislation provides a new legal tool to create a solid foundation for long term mission alignment and value creation. It protects mission through capital raises and leadership changes, creates more flexibility when evaluating potential sale and liquidity options, and prepares businesses to lead a mission-driven life post-IPO.

Why is the Green Party of BC advocating for this legislation in British Columbia? What impact will legislation - if adopted into law - have for the business community? How can business leaders get involved? Join us for the conversation on March 27th to contribute and learn more.

We'll hear from:

- Dr. Andrew Weaver, BC Green Party

- Rick Alexander, B Lab

- Michelle Reid (Mills Office Productivity) and Bernie Geiss (Cove Continuity Advisors), both Certified B Corps
