B.I.G. Charity Law Group: Empowering Charities and Not-for-Profits

Imagine running your Charity or Not-for-Profit with total peace of mind, confidence, and freedom. With the help of B.I.G. Charity Law Group, that dream can easily become your reality. Most organizations call a lawyer when something has gone wrong – they find themselves in legal trouble, they get rejected by the CRA, they’re facing complex issues with their governing boards, or they hit a roadblock they can’t possibly hope to face alone.

And while we happily go to bat for our clients in times of trouble, our hope is that you’ll contact us long before things start going south. At B.I.G. Charity Law Group, we’re passionate about setting up your charity or Not-for-Profit organization on a strong, stable, and legal footing right from the beginning so you can operate with complete confidence.

Your non-profit or charity is like a house. If it doesn’t have a solid foundation, you’re sure to run into problems down the line. Rather than waiting for the pipes to start leaking or the roof to start caving in, we want to help you create a sturdy, reliable structure that supports your mission for years to come.

While charity law may not be the flashiest or most glamorous area of law, we find it to be some of the most fulfilling work one could possibly do. It gives us the opportunity to help you build something that creates positive, lasting change in the world.

As a practice fueled by mission and purpose, it’s our delight and privilege to exclusively help charities and Not-for-Profit organizations across Canada with all of their legal needs, from charity registration and compliance to Not-for-Profit incorporation and governance.

Your Vision, Our Expertise
You started your Not-for-Profit organization with an important purpose in mind. Your charity is more than a business for you; it’s a way to create positive change in the world. As experienced charity lawyers, our goal is to help bring your worthy cause to fruition by making sure all your legal bases are covered. We’re delighted to come alongside you and support you as you make your mission and vision a reality.
Our Unique Focus
As Canada’s only law firm that exclusively practices Charity and Not-for-Profit Law, our depth of knowledge and experience in non-profit and charity law is unique. Unlike legal generalists and law firms who dabble in multiple practice areas, we know the ins and outs of charity law like the backs of our hands.
Our Services
Not-For-Profit Incorporation: Our lawyers provide clear guidance on whether not-for-profit incorporation is the right step for your organization, helping you navigate the complexities of the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act and provincial counterparts. We assist with preparing bylaws, setting up governance structures, and transitioning unincorporated groups to corporate entities.

Charity Registration Applications: Securing registered charity status in Canada is increasingly complex. Our experienced lawyers guide organizations through the application process, ensuring readiness and compliance with the latest guidelines from the Charities Directorate of the Canada Revenue Agency.

Maintaining Strong Corporate Governance: We provide strategic advice to help our charity clients remain compliant with regulatory requirements, ensuring robust governance frameworks that support their mission and operations.

Commercial Services: We offer full-service commercial legal support, including lease reviews, employment matters, and contract negotiations to charities and not-for-profits. Our comprehensive understanding of how different legal areas intersect with the not-for-profit sector enables us to provide strategic and proactive legal advice.

Protecting Charities Named as Estate Beneficiaries: We advise on the legal rights and obligations regarding funds received from charitable bequests, ensuring that charities receive the full intended benefit of such bequests.
