Annual General Meeting

3.2 (Amending constitution and bylaws)



3.2 Any proposed amendments to the constitution and bylaws must be presented to the membership at least thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the annual convention in writing. This notice must be distributed in an electronic format (e-mail) to registered members and posted on the convention web site home page. A member may require notification be made to them by parcel post.


3.2 Any proposed amendments to the letters patent and bylaws must be presented at the annual general meeting, , in accordance with the Corporations Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.38, by the Board of Directors to the membership for discussion and ratification.







Corporations without share capital (Ad Astra) are governed by the Corporations Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.38. Articles for such corporations are known as “letters patent”.


Presentation and approvals should be in relation to the annual general meeting, not the annual convention.

The Corporations Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.38 sets forth the rules and regulations for proposing, amending and ratifying changes to letters patent and bylaws.   This would ensure our bylaws are always in accordance with the Act, without having to amend the bylaws when there are changes to the Act.
