At its AGM in April 2019 Conscience Canada will consider and vote on a revised Bylaw. The revisions include corrected numbering of all paragraphs and sub-paragraphs throughout the bylaw. Without this technical correction of the old numbering, cross referencing within the bylaw is flawed.
The revisions also include a re-writing of paragraph 12 concerning Absentee Voting (appointing a Proxy). With this revision a completed proxy form will be able to be sent to Conscience Canada via email as well as by post. Also rewritten in plainer language are those paragraphs relating to how to provide proxies with instructions on voting on matters identified in the notice of meeting. This is a fundamental bylaw change as defined by the Canada Not For Profit Corporations Act. As such this will require approval of a special resolution of the members at our April AGM.
In this bylaw that we are posting the revised wording and previous versions are identified with yellow highlighting.
