Bylaws and Constitution

The original Bylaws and Constitution of NBIS have been serving the agency for twenty seven years, without change. With a new Societies Act for BC progressing through the legislature, and a recognition that the scope and complexity of our organization has inevitably changed since incorporation, NBIS is undertaking a complete review of these documents. Recommendations arising from the review will be presented to the membership over the coming twelve months.
