Single Legal Entity Resource Guide

As many of you may be aware, a leading practice consistently identified in the Effectiveness and Efficiency Reviews was the establishment of a consortium as a single legal entity. Further to this, the Council of Senior Business Officials (COSBO) had contracted Keel Cottrelle, LLP to create a resource guide for the sector.

The guide is now complete and consists of 3 separate documents; the resource guide itself; a sample agreement for establishing a non-incorporated entity; and a sample agreement for establishing an incorporated entity. Please select the link below to view the documents.

The single legal entity resource guide is a key tool for the further development of consortia. As we continue to move forward with reforming transportation in Ontario, the Ministry is committed to working with the sector to ensure students continue to arrive at school, safe and ready to learn.
