Notice of Extension: 2020 AthletesCAN Annual General Meeting

AthletesCAN – Athletes’ Association of Canada
PO Box 89007 Westdale
Hamilton, ON
L8S 4R5

In accordance with subsection 160(2) of the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act, notice is hereby given to the membership of Athletes CAN – Athletes’ Association of Canada Corporation #283874-5 to extend the time for calling the annual meeting of members for the financial year ending March 31, 2020 from September 30, to November 30, 2020 for the reasons outlined below.

AthletesCAN has elected to extend the time for calling the annual meeting of members due to the uncertain schedule of the 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games caused by the COVID-19 world pandemic. The board of directors will continue to monitor the recommended precautions of the federal and provincial governments as organization proceeds in finalizing the annual general meeting for the Fall of 2020. All meeting formats will be considered in the event that an in-person meeting is not appropriate due to potential continued public health risks of large public gatherings.

The audited financial statements for the year 2019-2020 will be sent to membership within six months of the previous financial year end (March 31st, 2020) as contemplated by section 175(1) of the CNCA. Furthermore, detailed financial reports can be made available to the membership upon request. I, the secretary of the organization, am confident that these measures are sufficient in eliminating any potential source of prejudice to members as it pertains to the provision of audited financial statements in a timely manner.

Thank you and we look forward to overcoming this adversity.

Dated in Ottawa, Ontario this 23rd day of March 2020.

 

Liam Smedley
Secretary
