The Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) will affect over 50,000 Ontario Corporation Act (OCA) non-profit corporations.

That anxiety may be quite unnecessary.  Here is the full article “Should Ontario non-profits or charities be worrying about the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA)?”
