Draft Reg#3 Available for Comment
The following post was researched and written by Daniel Brockenshire, a law student at Sutherland Kelly LLP. Thanks, Daniel! The third draft regulation, which was released on February 24, 2017, is aimed at regulatory changes to the Condominium Act, 1998 (the Act) and the Condominium Management Services Act (the CMSA). More specifically, the regulation proposes the scope of the Condominium Authority Tribunal and the designation of two new administrative authorities, one for the Act the other for the CMSA. Comments are due by April 10, 2017.
- Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO)
- Returns – under Part II.1 of the Act;
- Director Training;
- Compliance Orders made by the Registrar; and
- Contravening the provisions of the Act dealing with filing returns and paying assessments to the CAO will be an offence.
- Corporations, owners, and mortgagees could apply for resolution of disputes about compliance with s.55 of the Act or any regulations made under it; and
- Purchasers could only apply for resolution of disputes with the Corporation related to compliance with subsection 55(3) of the Act.
- An individual’s name, unless the name identifies the individual in their professional, business, or official capacity;
- Unit and street number of an individual’s address, unless the number identifies the individual in their professional, business, or official capacity;
