a nonprofit charitable society

Columbian Centre is a nonprofit charitable society.  The term “nonprofit” is often used to describe organizations whose primary focus is more on solving social issues, or supporting a group or a cause rather than earning a profit. In Canada the term “nonprofit” often means organizations of one of three broad groups: registered charities, foundations and not-for-profit corporations. Columbian Centre is a registered charitable organization in Canada. Columbian Centre is also an incorporated “society” in the Province of British Columbia.
