The New Forfeited Corporate Property Act and Amendments to the OBCA - What You Need to Know

On December 10, 2016, the Forfeited Corporate Property Act (the "FCPA") and numerous amendments to the Ontario Business Corporations Act (the "OBCA") will come into force. These rules will impose new recordkeeping requirements on Ontario corporations, new liabilities on directors and officers, and a shortened timeframe for the recovery of forfeited corporate property. The new and amended legislation will constitute a significant departure from the current law, and as such, it is important that corporate owners, directors, and officers understand how their duties, obligations and liabilities are about to change.
