Amendments to Paddle Canada Bylaws

Ontario’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) replaced Ontario’s Corporations Act on October 19, 2021. This change created an opportunity for Paddle Canada to review our bylaws, and upon review, we identified a few areas that needed addressing to ensure we are compliant with the new act. Please review this document to understand the amendments. The first column outlines the current Bylaws, the second column shows the proposed change and the third column explains the reason for the change. Most of the changes are cleaner language, the intent of the bylaw itself has not changed. In those cases, the third column has been left blank. Any bylaw that has a proposed change has a brief explanation of the rationale.
