Prepare to Transition – What the New Ontario Not-For-Profit Corporations Act Means For Your Organization’s Governance
Did you hear? The new Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (the Act) came into force in late October 2021, reflecting an important move to modernize the corporate legislation for not-for-profits in Ontario.
Organizations incorporated under Ontario provincial legislation have three years to come into compliance (sigh of relief), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thinking about the transition now. With such diversity in the sector, the new legislation will have varying impacts, and this can be an opportune time to evolve your organization’s governance structure and approach, or to make long needed changes in these key areas.
- Learn about key provisions in the new Act
- Think about the transition from a governance perspective
- Hear lessons learned from similar transitions in the BC and federal jurisdictions
- Explore what your board should be thinking about now as your organization prepares for this transition
