June 2012 - The McGuinty Government announces Ontario would take steps to modernize Condo Act. Click for "Building a Better Condo Act" for COA quote on Government News report (bottom page)

COA Founder-President Linda Pinizzotto and Director Bob Coffey participate (by invitation from the Ministry of Consumer Services) as a Major Stakeholder in the full Review Process and have spoken at the Residents Review Panel. Our directive is to participate and provide the best recommendations for the protection of Condo Owners Rights.

September 2012 - Public Information Sessions identified a huge disconnect between Condo operations and the Condo Act therefore not protecting Condo Owners. The rooms have been filled with disgruntled Condo Owners who believe they are at mercy to the Board, losing money on value and concerned about potential illegal acts. Building a Better Condo Act is vital for Condo Owners rights.
