Here is a reminder we just received from Corporations Canada relating to AGMs in 2021 for CNCA corporations and that they can be done virtually, partially virtually or by unanimous resolution in many cases.
Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act
Corporations Canada has made it easier for Alberta non-profit corporations under the Societies Act (Alberta) and New Brunswick non-profits under the Companies Act that wish to move to the Federal Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (“CNCA”). They have also made it easier for CNCA corporations to move to the BC Societies Act and the New Brunswick Companies, although this will probably not affect many groups.
While non–profit organizations and charities are usually busy carrying out the purposes of their organization, record keeping often takes a back seat to other priorities. However, good record keeping practices by a non–profit organization or a registered charity should not be overlooked.
