Announces Mandatory Qualifications

for Condominium Managers

 

The Ontario government has announced that they are intending to introduce mandatory qualifications for Condominium Managers.  Many condominium owners and residents may be more familiar with the terminology "property managers" and "pro

perty management office" in their condominium complex.   These managers are not mandated to have training or an understanding of the Provincial Condo Act, condo declarations, rules and regulations of a condo, by-law and or other important information relating to the finances, building maintenance, operations etc. of a condo corporation.  COA is thrilled to see changes however condominium managers and management companies need to have a government licensing structure.  See Metro News

 

The Condo Owners Association (COA Ontario) is a stakeholder in the Condo Act Review.  The review consists of three stages.  All information of the review and links to the finding report can be found on COA.  Canada's Public Policy Forum has been e

ngaged by the Ministry to work through the 3 Condo Act review stages.   Stage Two began in March 2013 and Stage Three is expected to begin in fall of 2013.    Please follow COA Ontario for more details on "Building a Better Condo Act and take note of COA Submissions noting  a series of recommended changes to the Condo Act.  Unfortunately, the Ministry invited COA to participate on the Review but has not included COA as the Non Profit Condo Owners Association representing and advocating for Condo Owners rights on the Expert Panel.  COA has submitted a registered a complaint and are expecting to hear from the Ministry.
