Corporations Canada wishes to inform you that the information regarding the user fees proposed under the Canada Not-for-Profit Act (NFP Act) and the associated service standards was tabled in the House of Commons on September 20, 2010 and the Senate on September 27, 2010. According to the User Fees Act, each Chamber is given 20 sitting days to review the information. This is the final step of the fee approval process required under the User Fees Act.

Prior to the tabling, and in accordance with the process set out in the User Fees Act, public consultations on the proposed fees and services standards were held from January 4 to February 5, 2010 and an official notice of the fee proposal allowing stakeholders to submit official complaints was published in the Canada Gazette on May 8, 2010.  No complaints have been received.

Once the fee approval process is complete, the next step is the formal approval of the regulations. This process includes pre-publication of the proposed regulations in the Canada Gazette, Part I before final approval can be obtained from Treasury Board.

It is expected that the regulations will be approved in Spring 2011, which will allow the NFP Act to come into force. It is our intent to release certain material on the new Act, particularly on the transition process, at least one month prior to the coming into force of the NFP Act.  This material will include:

  • Step by Step Guide to the Transition to the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act;
  • Model by-laws and articles;
  • Reporting Obligations under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act.
