Important information about the AGM
Municipalities Newfoundland and Labrador, as a corporation without share capital, operates under the rules laid out in the Corporations Act.
Currently, the Corporations Act for Newfoundland and Labrador does not allow for virtual annual meetings to conduct necessary corporate business.
We have consulted with our lawyers at Stewart McKelvey and confirmed that as a result of the existing legislation any alternative approach to holding the AGM would require significant upfront changes to our By-Laws. The time and processes required for these changes will go into December. Consequently, our Board has taken the decision to proceed with our virtual conference but postpone our AGM until early 2021 when all the necessary steps to make this happen are in place. We are still well within the time period allowed by the Corporations Act as well as the new deadlines provided by the provincial government due to COVID-19.
We will be reaching out to the membership soon to provide them with more information on how the AGM will work. Our actions will be guided by legal advice and the terms of the Corporations Act. We appreciate your patience.
