The corporation must replace its letters patent, supplementary letters pat- ent (if any) and bylaws with new charter documents which comply with the New Act. The corporation must submit articles of continuance, forms con- fi rming the initial registered offi ce and fi rst directors of the corporation, and a name search confi rmation. Bylaws which are in compliance with the New Act can be submitted either as part of the initial package, or within 12 months of continuance following ap- proval by the members. Following a successful transition under the New Act, all registered charities (including those who have not amended their purposes and even those who have obtained pre-approval from the Canada Revenue Agency) must submit the certifi cate of con- tinuance, articles of continuance, various fi ling forms as well as a copy of the current bylaws and statement of purposes to the Canada Revenue Agency. As we're down to a matter of months before the transition deadline of October 17, 2014, any corpor- ation incorporated under the Old Act should turn their attention to their continuance under the New Act, so as to avoid an involuntary dissolution.
