Under the Co-operative Societies Act, the Registrar may cancel the registration of a society upon notice/application from at least three—fourths the membership of the society or where there is sufficient evidence that the membership is less than ten (10).

Cancellation of the registration under the Friendly Society will arise where the Registrar is satisfied that the membership has been reduced to less than twenty-one (21), and this cancellation will take immediate effect. This membership may also opt for voluntary dissolution upon submission to the Registrar via application made by three-fourths of the members of any society registered under the Friendly Societies Act.

Cancellation may also occur where the society has breached several sections of the applicable Act, and response adversely towards the directives of the Registrar in an effort to bring about compliance.
