The time has finally come! Information has now been received about a proposal to expand the scope of disputes that the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) will deal with.
The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services is now seeking input on regulatory proposals under the Condominium Act, 1998 (Condo Act).
The proposal, if approved, would proclaim into force a new section 117 of the Condo Act and amend two regulations under the Condo Act (O. Reg. 48/01, and O. Reg. 179/17) to:
- Expand the scope of disputes that can be heard by the CAT to include disputes related to nuisances, annoyances and disruptions, vehicles, parking, storage and pets or other animals on condominium properties or any assets of a condominium corporation.
- Establish certain nuisances, annoyances, and disruptions that are to be prohibited on condominium properties or any assets of a condominium corporation.
Information about the proposal, including the proposed commencement date, is now posted on Ontario’s Regulatory Registry for public feedback here.
