MVCA Special Meeting of the Members

Revisions to MVCA By-Laws 

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 at 7:00 pm


In October 2019, the Ontario Not-for-Profit Incorporations Act (ONCA) replaced the Corporations Act as the legislation under which all not-for-profit organizations in Ontario are governed.  A transition period was granted to allow existing organizations to evaluate their governing documents and make changes as required. If changes were made, the deadline to submit the documentation to the province is October 2024.

MVCA convened the Governance Committee who has researched ONCA, assessed our Constitution and By-Laws and have made recommendations that will bring us into compliance with the legislation.  The Board was consulted along the way and changes were discussed and revised accordingly.  The revised By-Laws were then reviewed by a lawyer.  Her comments were discussed and incorporated.  That version of the revised By-Laws were approved by the Board of Directors on March 12, 2024.

The next step is seeking approval of the revised By-Laws from the MVCA Membership.  That is the pupose of the meeting on April 16.  

The current By-Laws are available on the website HERE
