ServiceOntario channel for Not-for-Profits
The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade has created a new section dedicated to not-for-profits (NFPs) on ServiceOntario. We invite you to visit the website at the following address: www.ontario.ca/notforprofits
This bilingual one-stop shop comprises 600+ distinct pages providing guidance on how to start and manage your not-for-profit or charitable organization. NFPs can get information about the laws and regulations that apply to them. The site also includes the first Ontario wide Funding Directory that lists Ontario government grant opportunities. Research about the sector can also be found as well as the different Ontario government programs that support the sector.
Service Ontario has launched a new section for not-for-profits in Ontario making it faster and easier for organizations to get the services and information they need to start, operate and grow their NFPs. The new site features information on government open call programs for funding, ideas on how to start and manage a not-for-profit organization, a section to help organizations understand the laws that affect the sector, research about the sector, government initiatives that support the sector, and much more. Please follow the link to visit this new resource: www.ServiceOntario.ca/NotForProfits
We hope that our new ServiceOntario section dedicated to not-for-profits is of particularly interest to you and your stakeholders.
Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability
The government enacted the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act in 2005. This act lays the framework for the development of province-wide mandatory standards on accessibility in all areas of daily life.
Ontario now has accessibility standards in five areas:
- customer service
- information and communications
- design of public spaces
