BULLETIN - Condominium Act 1998

  The Condominium Act in Ontario first enacted in 1967 has not been amended since 1979. Lawyers, unit owners, developers and property managers have indicated that the current act is out dated, inflexible and an obstacle to growth. The Ontario government presented a draft to the C.C.I. and other organizations and worked with them to carefully review and discuss proposed changes.

Initially expected to be in place in 1996, the Act passed third and final reading in the legislature on December 17th 1998. It was expected to be passed into law on May 1, 1999. The Act was proclaimed into force on May 5, 2001.
