ACCKWA – AGM Update

The following message is for ACCKWA, membership, staff, volunteers and other supporters. We hope you are keeping well in these incredibly challenging times.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, on March 30, 2020, the Government of Ontario issued an order (retroactive to March 17, 2020) under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (the “Order”) temporarily suspending and replacing certain sections of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (“OBCA”) and the Corporations Act (Ontario) (“CA”). These amendments provide corporations with greater flexibility as to when they must hold their annual shareholder and/or member meetings (“Annual Meetings”), as well as how any meetings of shareholders, members and/or directors may be duly held by electronic means.

Our Board of Directors has decided to postpone our Annual General Meeting, normally held in June, to October 2020. You will be given ample notice to renew your membership in order to ensure you remain a member in good standing and are able to vote at the meeting.

If you wish to renew your membership now or to sign up as a new member, you can download ACCKWA’s Membership Form below and print your application, which can be sent by mail with credit card information or a cheque to our office at:

5-1770 King Street East, Kitchener, Ontario, N2G 2P1.

Alternatively, membership forms can be emailed to reception@acckwa.com and payments can be made online at https://acckwa.square.site

We remain committed to good governance and organizational stability, and thank our membership and community stakeholders for your patience and understanding.

ACCKWA is fortunate to have a Board of Directors with a diversity of experience engaging priority populations, serving people with complex care needs, community-based research and community development.
