Service standards for Corporations Canada and the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (“CNCA”)

Corporations Canada has service standards for the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act ("CNCA").   For example, an online incorporation is 90% of the time done either the day of filing or the next day.   Other incorporations are handled within 5 days 97% of the time.  Even amendments, revivals and continuances are only taking 5 days or less.  

With this sort of impressive performance it is not surprising that so many new groups being formed are skipping provincial incorporation and establishing themselves as Federal non-profit corporations. Also the problems, for example in Ontario, with Ontario Not-For-Profit Corporations (ONCA) and its very delayed implimentation, is causing people to avoid incorporating in Ontario as a non-profit corporation.  

Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
