Ontario Council

Ontario Council is coming to a close on June 13, 2021.

Since 1996, the Ontario Council has been the governing body of the Ontario Region.

In 2019, CHF Canada undertook a governance review. Ontario Council and the national Board jointly recommended reorganizing into a single governance body.

In 2020, at their annual business meeting, Ontario Region voted in favour of Resolution RI: Unified and effective governance of CHF Canada. The resolution also passed at the national AGM.

The resolution means:

  • January 1, 2021 By-law 2 and the Operating Rules for Ontario Region repealed
  • June 13, 2021 duties of Ontario Council finish at the end of the AGM, and
  • the duties of the new unified governance body commences, once delegates elect their Board.
