Should the Condominium Authority Tribunal’s Jurisdiction be Expanded?

The Ontario government is seeking feedback about the potential expansion of the scope of disputes heard by the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) to include disputes related to owners’ meetings. Specifically, the proposal is to expand the jurisdiction to include the following:

  1. Requisition meetings – the form of requisition and the board’s response to it.


  2. Meeting timelines and procedures – the requirements to call and hold owners’ meetings within specific timelines and conduct them according to the procedural requirements.


  3. Meeting notices – the required notices, including the content, timelines, and recipients.


  4. Quorum – the number of owners who must be present for business to be conducted at the meeting, including the proper counting of individuals in attendance.


  5. Voting – the rights of owners and mortgagees to vote at meetings, the procedures for holding and counting votes, and the use of the required voting thresholds.

Feedback is due by July 11, 2024. It will likely take 10-15 minutes to complete depending on your familiarity with the proposed changes to the Act and regulations. The proposed changes to the Act and regulations can be found here:
