By-law Changes

The Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) was proclaimed on October 19, 2021. We have 3 years from that date to comply with the act. Sue Flanagan and Nancy Boyce attended a FOCA webinar about ONCA on April 6, 2022. 

Two important issues came to light during the webinar.

  1. Our Corporation is required to have an audit done every year unless the membership votes at the AGM to not have an audit done. We are proposing that an audit be done every 5 years or whenever there is a new Treasurer. 

  2. We need to notify the Ontario government each time there is:

    • a change of directors

    • an address change

Sue and Nancy conducted a by-law review and discussed the changes at the August 8th board meeting. As a result of that meeting, changes are recommended in the document link below and a summary of changes is included. Other changes may be incorporated once the document is reviewed by a lawyer.

The current by-law is on our website
About BBLCA page.
