Roundtable for condo dwellers October 21

Published on October 7, 2021

Ontario’s condo dwellers deserve to have rights and protections so they can live good lives in well-maintained homes. To achieve this goal, we need legal and regulatory change. 

The Minister of Government and Consumer Services, condo regulatory agencies and tribunals do not provide adequate protection for Ontario's condo dwellers.  Many condo dwellers are unable to find help or recourse when they face common issues that affect their daily lives, including a failure to regulate short-term rentals, fraudulent board elections, massive unexplained hikes in condo fees, noise and odour concerns, poor maintenance of common areas, and property managers that are not performing their duties adequately.     

Starting in January, some legislative improvements will be enacted, including expanding the condo tribunal’s jurisdiction to hear nuisance complaints.  That said, these changes fall short of what the Auditor General is recommending in her critical December 2020 report on Ontario's condo sector.

That is why on Thursday October 21 at 6 pm – 7pm I am hosting an online public roundtable to hear your concerns, answer questions, and get feedback on some of the changes we will be asking the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services and the various regulatory authorities that govern the condo sector to enact.

Please RSVP here in advance.
