2021 By-law Amendments:

To update the revised corporate structure, a series of motions will be presented to the Members for voting at this month's AGM. A vote in favour to proceed will satisfy the legal and regulatory requirements to join the two associations, and, amend the by-laws of the revised corporation (hereafter referred to as the Ajax Pickering Ringette Association By-laws). These amendments include the recommendations of Ringette Ontario and outside legal counsel, and incorporate additional obligations required under the Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (upon becoming law).
