Election delays ONCA further

There is no firm  date when Ontario’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA) will take effect.

A technical amendments bill known as Bill 85 was introduced in the Ontario legislature in June 2013, but it died on the order paper when the provincial election was called. A new technical amendments bill will need to be re-introduced, debated and passed in a future session of the legislature. That means that the ONCA is not likely to take effect until 2015 or later.

Get Ready for the ONCA scaling back

The Get Ready for the ONCA project is scaling down while we wait for a new date for the ONCA.

We will keep answering questions and sending occasional updates on the ONCA, and will offer more training and help to organizations when a new proclamation date is announced.

In the meantime, visit our website and archived videos.
