Webinar: Bill 68 – Are You Ready?
Let’s Talk About Your Meetings
April 2, 2019,10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
On November 16, 2016, Bill 68 (aka “Modernizing Ontario’s Municipal Legislation Act”) was introduced in response to the Province’s review of the Municipal Act and the MCIA. Bill 68 contains numerous amendments to the Municipal Act 2001, the Municipal Elections Act (MEA), the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act (MCIA) and several other Acts. Some of the changes came into force back on January 1, 2018, the others are on March 1, 2019. Feeling overwhelmed?
Bill 68 Guidance from a Public Sector Expert

While Bill 68 brings many changes in different areas of local government operations, the good news is that quite a few of them are associated with how meetings are handled. And meetings are, in fact, a very good (and easy) place to start.
For users of electronic meeting management systems, your vendor may or may not have a roadmap for updating their solutions to automate compliance with the new requirements. For those who are still heavily paper-based, now is the time to look into leveraging technology to make compliance easier.
Given eSCRIBE’s significant Ontario customer base, we are committed to supporting both the internal and external requirements for complying with the new legislation.
Want to know how well your organization stands when it comes to Bill 68 compliance? Or if your organization is still paper-based, want to find out how you can get started towards compliance? Join us for this webinar, hosted by eSCRIBE and featuring guest speaker Debi Wilcox, a highly experienced meeting management professional from Meeting Solutions Group.
