“Ontario to roll out new rules for condo boards” via”Toronto Star”
Ontario’s 1.6 million condo dwellers will be able to take disputes to a tribunal under new provincial rules that include mandatory training for condo directors and licensing for building managers.
Until now, condo owners and corporations had to hire a private mediator or go through the courts to pursue issues ranging from noisy neighbours to corporate record access.
It’s an expensive process that hasn’t always been successful, said Government and Consumer Services Minister Tracy MacCharles on Tuesday.
“The reality is, many conflicts aren’t resolved and continue to fester,” she said.
