ONCA is Coming in 2020: Should We Doing Anything Now?

Tuesday March 6, 2018 at 12:00pm EST

This webinar will provide an overview of ONCA and  the recent Bill 154 amendments to that Act and the Corporations  Act.  Some practical steps that Ontario  corporations should take to prepare for ONCA will be discussed. In addition, the implications of some key amendments such as the new absentee voting rules will be analysed. This webinar will also be useful to Ontario corporations that are considering whether or not to remain as an Ontario corporation or become a federal corporation. 

This webinar will be presented by Allen Doppelt and Wayne Gray both of Gray, Whitley LLP.

Allen has 30 years' experience providing legal services to various Ministries of the Ontario government, including the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services. He was the lawyer chiefly responsible for advising on, and drafting, the Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA) and model by-law.  Since retiring from government practice in 2011, Allen has carried on private practice, primarily serving the needs of charities and other not-for-profit corporations (including corporate law and procurement of IT, goods and services).  He joined Gray Whitley LLP in 2017.

Wayne has almost 40 years of experience in business law, currently focusing on not-for-profit (NFP) and for-profit corporate law, directors' and officers' liability issues and corporate governance matters. He had leadership roles at all stages of NFP corporate law reform federally and in Ontario (including acting as reporter for the Canadian Bar Association submission on the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act and regulations and co-chair of the joint Ontario Bar Committee submission on Ontario NFP corporate law reform culminating in the ONCA).
