Ontario’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA) provides a modern, legal framework for not-for-profit corporations, including charitable corporations. It sets out how not-for-profit corporations in Ontario are created, governed and dissolved.
ONCA is targeted to come into effect no earlier than January, 2014. Existing not-for-profit corporations will have a three-year transition period once ONCA is in effect.
Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO) will provide support to not-for-profit corporations as they make the transition to ONCA.
Check back for updates on ONCA’s effective date and the latest transition tools.
Note: ServiceOntario is responsible for processing applications for corporations including not-for-profit corporations.
