Order for Recommencement of Strike Off Provisions Effective November 30, 2020

Sep 14-20

The Director of Corporations and Registrar of Co-operatives has issued an Order to recommence the strike off provisions for non-profit corporations, co-operatives and new generation co-operative entities. The Saskatchewan Corporate Registry will resume strike off activities for entities types, effective November 30, 2020.

Impacted non-profits corporations, co-operatives, and new generation co-operatives that have not yet filed an annual return, will receive communication advising of new filing date expectations.

The suspension of strike off activities was implemented in March 2020 to address public health restrictions preventing in-person meetings. Since that time, amendments to the The Non-Profit Corporations Regulations, 1997 and The Co-operatives Regulations, 1998 took effect, allowing non-profit corporations, co-operatives and new generation co-operatives to hold a meeting of members, unless prohibited by bylaws or articles, via telephonic, electronic or other communications that permits all participants to communicate adequately with each other during the meeting.

To lessen the impact for those organizations that may require additional time to organize an annual meeting and file an annual return, late filing fees will continue to be waived for until November 30, 2020. Organizations that have completed the necessary activities and are able to submit their annual returns and related filings are encouraged to do so.

Visit the Government of Saskatchewan Public Registry website for additional information on the legislative requirements to maintain your non-profit or co-operative and new generation co-operative entity.
