Legal Self-Assessment Tool

Law For Nonprofits' legal self-assessment tool's aim is to help identify legal flashpoints early and therefore reduce risks associated with any issues that may be present in five areas of law: governance, privacy, leasing/contracts, employment, human rights and CRA compliance. Once the user has answered the questions they will be provided with a key.  Users will be better able to identify any gaps in legal compliance and identify resources to assist them to rectify issues that get flagged in the process. The tool development and initial pilot was being funded by the City of Vancouver and the Vancity Community Foundation Social Innovation Fund. The project is the second phase in the development of an integrated strategy to improve the access of non-profits to legal information, education and advice.
