Register Online Now! Free Teleconference - Modernizing the Ontario Corporations Act

You are here

The current statutory regime governing not-for-profit corporations in Ontario requires updating. The original version of the statute, the Corporations Act (CA), was created in 1907 and was last substantially revised in 1953. Since that time, there have been no significant revisions to the CA. Concerns have been raised that the CA is antiquated, cumbersome and does not statutorily meet the requirements of the modern not-for-profit sector. At present, there are over 50,000 not-for-profit corporations active in Ontario under the CA.

The objective of the reform is to respond to the realities of the not-for-profit sector in the 21st century by creating a new stronger legal framework for members of not-for-profit corporations, those who utilize not-for-profit services and contributors to charitable initiatives.

To find out more about the Modernization of the Ontario Corporations Act, join us for a tele-learning session on Wednesday, September 17th at noon. Come hear Lynn Eakin from the Ontario Nonprofit Network and share your opinions with many other participants across the province.

We recommend that you confirm your attendance soon, as space is limited.
