Need help incorporating in Ontario? The Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) has released an updated version of it’s Not-for-Profit Incorporator’s Handbook.
UPDATE: you can now access the updated handbook (and other PGT publications) on the main PGT page here.
In the 83-page Handbook you’ll find information about corporate names, how to apply for incorporation, starting up, maintaining (operating) the corporation, filing requirements, charitable corporations, the role of the Public Guardian and Trustee, and more.
Importantly, this version is updated to reflect the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) that came into effect October 19, 2021.
Of course, it isn’t legal advice and doesn’t speak to specific problems, but it is a very helpful general guide. If you’re a CCCC member looking for information about specific problems, feel free to reach out to our Member Support Team!
