2020 Horticultural Society Annual Return & Grant Application

Horticultural Societies - Guide for Completing 2020 Annual Return & Grant Application

What's New

There is NO DEADLINE established yet to file your 2020 Annual Return.

Completing the Annual Return

In the new year horticultural societies will be able to submit a completed Annual Return using a new and improved submission process through TPON (Transfer Payment Ontario). To prepare for this, please check that your society is registered on TPON.

An email outlining the new and improved submission process with a detailed guide will be sent to every society in March 2021.

Annual General Meetings

Societies are required to hold an annual general meeting. Please ensure supporting documents are ready to submit with your return - Financial statements, Review Certificate (signed prior to AGM) and a list of incoming Executives and Directors.

If your society cannot hold their annual meeting within the 15 months of their last meeting due to unusual and extenuating circumstances, societies can send an email to the OMAFRA Director at AHOA.admin@ontario.ca to request an extension with a proposed new date (month/year) and provide reason for the AGM delay. The ministry will approve extensions and notify societies via email.
