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.
When a board of directors, senior staff, volunteers and members of a not-for-profit are marching to the same beat, an organization can do great things and win the admiration of the community at large. But when they fall out of step—for example, when the board loses control of the executive director, or the organization squanders the respect of its members or volunteers—things can go very wrong, very fast.
