CFC Rules & Regulations
The current legal rules of the CFC are contained in the “Continuance” submitted in 2014 to comply with the Not For Profit Corporations Act (2009).
The legacy rules of the CFC are contained in the legacy CFC Handbook.
Although it is no longer the “official” CFC Bylaws nor is legally binding, the current CFC president, Vlad Drkulec, has promised to abide by the legacy CFC Handbook as CFC policy to the extent possible consistent with the NFP Act.
In 1976, the CFC became a corporation. The Letters Patent for incorporation are contained in Section 2 of the legacy CFC Handbook.
In 2014, the CFC changed its structure to comply with the Not For Profit Corporations Act (2009). This change was rushed to meet a deadline that, if missed, would have dissolved the CFC and disbursed its assets to other charities. As such, there was not enough time to convert the legacy CFC Handbook.
In 2020, with the launch of the new CFC website, the CFC Handbook was converted from a single web page to two Google Docs: Legal and Legacy (see above). The Google Doc format enables both readers and editors to read or update a single copy in a format easier than the website’s HTML.
As of today, the need to update the CFC rules and regulations is a well recognized problem. Several volunteers are now working on updating sections.
