Ontario's legislature wasted no time following the passage of the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act to enact its own Act to revise the law in respect of not-for-profit corporations (Bill 65). The Bill received royal assent on October 25, but the government hasn't set a date for it to come into force yet.
In late May, Ontario Bill 65, the not-for-profit corporations act, received second reading in the provincial legislature. This is the culmination of several years of consultation with the not-for-profit sector.
