The new Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (CNCA) came into force October 17, 2011. Federal non-profits have until October 17, 2014 to continue under the new act of face possible dissolution. Industry Canada has placed hundreds of pages of information on the new act on their website in over 70 different documents. We have tried to accumulate the information in one PDF document which is now over 500 pages. For up to date information check the Industry Canada website. We have also included for registered charities information from the Charities Directorate of CRA. This document may be helpful because it is easier to save a PDF to your computer or laptop especially if you will not have internet connectivity. Furthermore, one can word search (usually Control F) for words through the document. This document is not comprehensive and in the future we may update it.
