As many of you know on October 17, 2011, the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (CNCA) came into force. Canadian non-profits under the Canada Corporations Act (CCA) have 3 years to make the transition. The bad news first - today is the deadline. The good news is that about 9000 CCA corporations of 19,000 or so have moved over to the CNCA. About another 1000 are in the pipeline according to Industry Canada and being processed. The next bit of good news that you should know is that although the deadline for the transition is October 17, 2014, dissolution is not automatic today and in fact Industry Canada will apparently start very slowly dissolving corporations beginning in November and focusing in on corporations who have not filed their corporate returns for many years.
