It's been on the back-burner for a bit but it's time that I get on it and register our operation as a on-profit organization. We will be registering under the BC Societies Act. Completing this registration will allow for opening up a bank account under the organization's name and reopen donations and have the previously donated funds transferred from @[email protected] to the organization.
To this date since taking over operations of Lemmy.ca I have personally covered the costs and have not been reimbursed to keep accounting as clean as possible. This will continue until registration has been completed.
First step to this is picking a name to register the Society under. Requirements for the name can be found here.
While the initial main purpose of the society/organization will be operating Lemmy.ca we would prefer a name that would be fit for operations of other open communication platforms as well as other potential projects that we may want to participate in in the future. Something somewhat open ended.
Please give us some suggestions and we will take the suggestions under advisement when picking a name.
