We will be hosting a webinar in partnership with Miller Thomson LLP for all AFHTO members about recent changes to the Ontario Corporations Act (OCA). Amendments were made to this Act following the passage of the Cutting Unnecessary Red Tape Act, 2017, last November.

These amendments to the OCA brought flexibility to the Ontario non-profit governance rules.

The webinar with Miller Thomson LLP includes the following:

  • Review of recent amendments to the existing Corporations Act in Ontario now in effect
  • Update on status of the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA)
  • Review of key future changes in ONCA
  • Governance action items
