Not-for-Profit Registration

The federal government has passed new legislation that directly concerns non-profit corporations (organizations).  Ontario is in a similar process.

I am there to help with annual filing responsibilities of existing organizations or to assist new organizations with their first-time registration.

Existing, federally registered non-profit (including charities) organizations in Canada, will have re-registered with Corporations Canada by October 2014.  The Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act came into force on October 17, 2011.

If you are an existing, Ontario provincially registered non-profit organization, necessary actions to be taken for re-registration are indicated here.  It is expected that you will have a three year transition period for re-registration, once the Act comes into force. The Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010, began its period of consolidation on October 25, 2010.
