Is the CAO responsible for creating the forms? Maybe in the near future…

There is a new proposal to have the CAO assume responsibility for 19 forms under the Condominium Act, 1998 and its regulations. The idea is that the proposed changes would “support the condominium community in being able to more easily access and use certain forms under the Condominium Act, 1998.” The proposal is for 17 forms to be delegated to the CAO on January 1, 2020 and 2 additional forms on July 1, 2020.

The January 1, 2020 list includes:

  • information certificates and the notice of online posting the certificates
  • status certificates
  • notice of meeting, preliminary notice of meeting, and other meeting documents, including the proxy and submission to include material by an owner
  • record request related, including the request form, response to request and waiver of request forms

The two forms proposed to be delegated to the CAO on July 1, 2020 are the notice of future funding of the reserve fund and the summary of lease or renewal that owners must complete when they lease their units.

The remaining forms, including many used in the creation of the condominium and when changes are made to the declaration, description or by-laws, will not be delegated to the CAO.

The proposal is available online at https://www.ontariocanada.com/registry/view.do?postingId=30327&language=en. Comments are due by September 30, 2019.

What do you think of the proposal?
