The overall theme of changes proposed in this new draft is simplification and clarity as well as modernization to align with new technology and virtual meeting styles.


  1. All articles were re-written for readability + accessibility and better alignment to the Nova Scotia Societies Act. You can see this change throughout but does not include any changes of meaning.

  2. Modernizing the language throughout to bring CFAT and our governing documents up to speed with today's technology.

  3. The role of Executive Director has been clarified as well as the role of the Board in relation to the Executive Director and to committees. [4]
