Here is a blurb from the ONN May E-bulletin:   "Just how many nonprofits?!  It's amazing the number of calls and emails we received about this first-ever list of nonprofits in Ontario. What we know: there are 59,605 registered not-for-profit organizations in Ontario in this list, and likely more, including those registered nationally or in other provinces. While the list is not a searchable database yet, it's an important step forward, thanks to Mark Blumberg who got the list through Freedom of Information requests and made it public. ONN will continue to advocate for an online searchable database of registered nonprofits in Ontario- we hear you on how important this is for the sector-building and open data!"

We also hope that at some point the Ontario government will make available a more detailed searchable database of Ontario non-profit corporations.   The Ontario government has committed to having it available when ONCA comes into force - but that could be 1-2 years from now.   

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