1. Potential Permanent Changes to Enable Digital and Virtual Processes under the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services Business Law and Condominium Statutes.
On October 1, 2020, new regulations made under the CA, OBCA, CCA and Condo Act came into force extending the application of the temporary legislative amendments permitting corporations to call and hold meetings through electronic and telephonic means, as applicable, notwithstanding certain requirements, until May 31, 2021, subject to further extension.
The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (the Ministry) is now seeking public and stakeholder input on whether potential permanent changes or further temporary changes should be proposed to the various business law statutes and to the Condo Act, in relation to virtual processes to help corporations adapt to new ways of doing business that are more digital/virtual allowing for broader participation.
