An Act Respecting Rainbow Haven



Be it enacted by the Governor and Assembly as follows:


1 This Act may be cited as the Rainbow Haven Act.


2 In this Act,


(a) "Corporation" means Rainbow Haven, Limited, incorporated by Chapter 186 of the Acts of 1921, An Act to Incorporate Rainbow Haven, Limited;


(b) "Registrar" has the same meaning as in the Societies Act.


3 Any five members of the Corporation may apply to the Registrar to continue the Corporation as a society under the Societies Act under a name other than Rainbow Haven, Limited by transmitting to the Registrar the same documents and fees that they would be required by Section 5 of that Act to transmit to the Registrar if those persons were proceeding to incorporate a society under that name pursuant to the Societies Act.


4 (1) Where the Registrar is satisfied that


(a) the memorandum and by-laws transmitted pursuant to Section 3 comply with the Societies Act;


(b) the objects of the corporation, as set out in the memorandum, are within the scope of the Societies Act and are sufficiently set forth; and


(c) the name set out in the memorandum under which the corporation is to be continued is not identical with that of any subsisting company, society or association, incorporated or unincorporated, does not so nearly resemble such a name as to be calculated to deceive and is not objectionable for any other reason,


the Registrar shall register the memorandum and by-laws and issue a certificate that the Corporation is incorporated under that name as a society under the Societies Act.


(2) A certificate issued pursuant to subsection (1) is conclusive evidence that the requirements of this Act in respect of continuing the Corporation as a society within the meaning of the Societies Act under the name contained in the memorandum transmitted to the Registrar have been complied with and that the Corporation is continued, under that name, as a society under the Societies Act.


(3) When a certificate is issued pursuant to subsection (1),


(a) the Corporation is continued, as a body corporate and as a society within the meaning of the Societies Act, under the name set out in the memorandum transmitted to the Registrar pursuant to this Act and is a society under that name for all purposes, including all purposes of the Societies Act, as if it were incorporated under that name pursuant to that Act;


(b) any reference to Rainbow Haven, Limited in any enactment,or in any document, including any conveyance, contract or will, shall, as regards any subsequent transaction, matter or thing, be read as a reference to the Corporation by the name under which it is continued pursuant to this Act; and


(c) Chapter 186 is repealed.
