is Calling for a Special Meeting of the Membership
Corporations Canada has made changes to Canada’s Not for Profit Act (NFP) Act and in order to be in compliance with the new NFP Act incorporated organizations are required to file papers of continuance. The papers will allow for the continuance of the National Networks corporate status under the provisions of the new Canadian Not for profit act.
At this time the Board of Directors is asking the NNMH voting members to authorize and direct the Board to make application under section 297 of the NFP Act to the Director appointed under the NFP Act for a Certificate of Continuance of the Corporation.
