On November 14th, Bill 154 received Royal Assent. As noted previously, this omnibus bill made changes to the Corporations Act (Ontario), to social investment provisions in the Charities Accounting Act (Ontario), and other statutes. Some of the more significant changes to the Not-For-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (“ONCA”) are reported here, none of which are in force today but will be when ONCA comes into force. As you may recall, ONCA was passed in 2010, but it will only come into force on a day to be named. The government plans to bring the ONCA in force in early 2020.
