Facts

  • Our Provincial Government needs to recognize condominium structures and assist with special benefits and/or exemptions.
  • COA is not concerned with good Board of Directors who handle the affairs of the Corporation in compliance to the Condo Act. We are concerned about those who do not comply and where the Condo Owners have no rights within their own buildings
  • How do Condo Owners in these situations protect their investment? COA is keeping a record of all of the complaints they receive which not only identifies the problem but also in which Condo Corporation these problems exist.
  • As is identifying a numerous assortment of complaints received from members which they can present to Government to force resolutions and offer constructive and helpful suggestions for changes in the Condo Act.
  • COA stands behind a mandate that all Condo Board of Directors must be forced to comply to the Condo Act
  • The Condo Owners Association has identified that the Condo Act cannot be a self governing Act as it stands today. It has to reflect a protection method for Condo Owners and the Condo Corportion where a fining process to those in non-compliance to the Act can be processed which is no different from other Acts in place example: Traffic Act, Accessibility Act, Health and Safety Act and so on
  • COA supports a certification and education process for Condo Board of Directors recognizing that they are handling the affairs of potentially an $80,000 Million dollar + or - Condo Corporation with and an operating budget of possibly $1,000,000 Million dollars as an example of a 300 unit building.
