Last year, the Ontario government retained Ottawa-based Canada’s Public Policy Forum to lead a review of the 2001 Condominium Act and recommend changes to solve a number of perceived problems with the legislation.
Condominium owners, developers, managers, lawyers and other stakeholders have now completed the second of three stages of the 18-month review process. Five working groups have developed a series of possible solutions to a number of the issues which emerged from the first stage of the study.
These groups focused on
– Consumer protection
– Dispute resolution
– Condominium property management
The full, 72-page report, available online at ppforum.ca, provides a hint of what condominium law will look like if and when the report’s final recommendations are passed into law.
