New Education Program for Condominium Managers
In 2017, the Minister of Government and Consumer Services designated the courses and challenge exams developed by the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO) as the education and examination requirements necessary for applicants to qualify for a General Licence. As outlined in regulation (O. Reg. 123/17), the authority for setting education and examination requirements will be transferred to the Registrar of the CMRAO on November 1, 2021.
Over the last year, the CMRAO has prepared for this important transition by developing Ontario’s first competency profile for the condominium management profession, and by developing a roadmap and course curriculum that incorporates the identified competencies within the educational requirements.
The new curriculum features six courses, the first of which is Excellence in Condominium Management. The new education program is another exciting step that further reinforces the professionalization of Ontario’s rapidly expanding condominium management sector.
The curriculum roadmap and course blueprints are now available on the CMRAO website.

New Licence Cards and New CMRAO Licence Designations
Condominium managers will soon receive their new licence cards at the address for service registered with the CMRAO. If you do not receive your new licence cards by November, please contact email@example.com to update your address.
The CMRAO is pleased to announce a set of designations that condominium managers may now use (the new licence cards will incorporate the appropriate designation). Although not required, you may choose to use the designation that reflects your CMRAO licence:
- Ontario Licensed Condominium Manager (OLCM) – for individuals with a General or Transitional General Licence
- Ontario Licensed Condominium Manager (OLCM–L) – for individuals with a Limited Licence
- Ontario Licensed Condominium Management Provider (OLCMP) – for businesses with a Condominium Management Provider Licence
If you do decide to incorporate a CMRAO designation, you must represent yourself accurately.

The videos will cover the following areas:
