  • OSEA: Message from On Co-op on the Impacted of Proposed Changes to Ontario's Co-operative Corporations Act
    the impact of the changes on a local and regional provincial basis to MoF FSCO and assist in moving this process forward PROPOSED CHANGE 1 Changes to Audit Exemptions BACKGROUND A number of changes are being considered to increase the exemption thresholds before an external audit is conducted These will generally benefit newly formed co operatives and co ops with relatively low annualized levels of capital assets or revenue These recommendations will provide parity with other Ontario legislation such as the new Ontario Non profit Corporations Act and will take into account the eroding effects of inflation on the existing exemption limits RECOMMENDATION Recommendations for the new capital and asset exemption limits for co ops that have never issued securities and the prescribed maximums of capital assets gross revenue or sales for audit exemptions have not been yet determined by the Regulatory Affairs Committee sector input into these levels is required through this submission process INFORMATION REQUESTED MoF is looking for evidence that the current audit exemption limits are causing financial hardship to co operatives or excessively increasing the cost of bookkeeping and annual audits Please consider at a minimum the circumstances of your co operative in these areas What is your burden of complying direct audit costs bookkeeping staffing equipment tracking software etc What percentage of your annual revenue is devoted to an annual audit Does this affect your competitiveness or organizational sustainability What is the potential volume of business lost What are your recommendations for new limits and thresholds Are there other issues or external influences relating to to audit exemptions you wish to bring forward PROPOSED CHANGE 2 Removal of the 50 Provision BACKGROUND The Co operative Corporations Act CCA requires that a co operative conduct 50 percent or more of its business with the members of that co operative As determined by substantial co op sector research in 2010 the sector has determined that overall the 50 Rule is a barrier to co operative incorporation and sustainable growth especially for retail co ops or those who also transact business with non members The 50 percent provision is an arbitrary value that bears no relevance to the co op principles Ontario and Quebec are the only two provinces with this type of limit the other Canadian jurisdictions including federal co operatives generally rely on wording similar to what is already contained in the CCA regarding carrying on business in a co operative manner Compliance is cumbersome to monitor and manage and incurs additional auditing costs for both the government and co operatives RECOMMENDATION To remove this provision entirely from the Co operative Corporations Act If the proposed change was made to the CCA co operatives could then have the option to determine their own percentage of business to members from 0 100 and include that percentage in its by laws or policies INFORMATION REQUESTED MoF is looking for evidence that the 50 rule is causing financial hardship to co operatives or is having a negative impact on
