ONCA update

On September 14, 2017, the Ontario government introduced the Cutting Unnecessary Red Tape Act that includes amendments to Ontario's Corporations Act and the Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA). This move wasn't unexpected. In June 2017, the Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) informed their members that new legislation was being planned.

Ontario’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA) is still not expected to take effect for at least two years. 


Current law

The ONCA website has a new section called 'Current law'. Containing information on  Ontario’s Corporations Act, these pages may help you understand how the law currently applies to your nonprofit.

For example, they can help you: Help us share these new resources widely. Please consider forwarding this email to your networks and mentioning these resources in your ebulletins or blog posts. We'd even be happy to write a guest blog on them for you. You can contact us at: nonprofitlaw@cleo.on.ca.

The new content on the ONCA website was developed by Benjamin Miller with the support of a Donner Foundation fellowship and the CLEO team. Read Benjamin's post on how it was developed in Slaw, Canada’s online legal magazine.
