Pursuant to an order of the Licence Appeal Tribunal, the CMRAO has refused to issue a General Licence and revoked the Limited Licence of a licensee.
The CMRAO began operations on November 1, 2017, and ensures that condominium managers and management provider businesses are licensed, meet education and experience requirements, and comply with a Code of Ethics.
Condominium managers are professionals who need a licence from the CMRAO to provide their services in Ontario.
Code of Ethics
The Code of Ethics regulation establishes the general obligations of condominium managers and condominium management companies.
Condominium managers interact with many individuals in carrying out their duties, but they report and are accountable to their client, the condominium corporation, through its board of directors.
Condominium corporations may hire a condominium management provider business or condominium manager who must have a valid licence issued by the CMRAO to oversee the corporation’s day-to-day operations.
If the Discipline Committee determines that a licensee has failed to comply with the Code of Ethics, it may order penalties as appropriate under the CMSA.
NOTICE OF FEES
Consistent with the provisions of Schedule G “Fee Setting Process and Criteria” of the Administrative Agreement, the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (CMRAO) hereby gives notice of an increase to its licensing fees by 4%.
