After becoming an official act of the Ontario legislature in 2010, the ONCA will finally received Royal Proclamation by the Lieutenant Governor on October 19, 2021. All not-for-profit Ontario sport organizations will need to become compliant with the ONCA by October 2024. Unlike its predecessor, the Ontario Corporations Act (“OCA”), the ONCA will exclusively govern all incorporated not-for-profit organizations in Ontario, including sport organizations. Back in 2017, due to the delays in proclaiming the ONCA, the provincial government passed the Cutting Unnecessary Red Tape Act which amended the OCA to include some of the proposed changes in the ONCA. As a result, many organizations in Ontario may have already begun the process of becoming ONCA-compliant.
Now that the ONCA will finally take force, it means that all of the impending changes that sport organizations had to do in order to be compliant with the new legislation are now imminent.
- Understanding the most recent changes in ONCA (that affect organizations that have more than one type of membership)
- Understanding who has the right to vote and who doesn’t, among membership categories

- Understanding of steps required to ensure compliance by end of 3-year transition period
