Legislative changes can be very complex, and you need to assure that your organization will both comply, and thrive, under the new legislation. ONCA: What Every Not-for-Profit Needs to Know will help you comply with both the letter and the intent of this new legislation by giving you the tools and insights you need to adapt and thrive under ONCA.

Legislative Changes:

Ontario (Canada) has a new Not-for-Profit Legislation, which has been in the works for over a decade. The new Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) legislation comes into force on October 19th, 2021, and it will require Not-for-Profit Boards to review their by-laws and carefully consider membership classes, types, and rights.

“Not-for-profit corporations will be able to use the new registry to complete transactions with the government simply and quickly. The launch of the new registry will also bring into force the Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010, a modern legislative framework for the not-for-profit sector” (source: Ontario Government)
