Message from our Editor:

CondoBusiness cuts through industry acronyms and jargon to provide educational content that is just as valuable to a volunteer board director confronting people, pet and parking issues for the first time as it is to a veteran property manager helping clients navigate changes to Ontario’s condo laws.

One Bedford Condo in Toronto is now equipped to support electric vehicle (EV) charging in just about every exclusive-use space in its parking garage, says board president David Forgione. The condo corporation has inked a contract with a San Francisco-based company called EverCharge, whose fully managed solution is touted as increasing the EV charging capacity of buildings by 10 fold. 

On Oct. 17, 2018, the federal government legalized the sale of recreational cannabis in Canada. This is a monumental shift in the legal landscape that may have organizations such as property management companies wondering how they can adapt to this change.

In condominium corporations, accessibility is too often — and wrongly — associated with unexpected and significant costs and veiled threats of legal action against unresponsive boards and property managers. It may be more helpful to think of through the lens of inclusivity, which is warmer and more inviting and simply means not excluding anyone.

The fate of some of the planned changes to Ontario’s condo laws remains unknown following the election of a new provincial government three months ago.

Every condominium corporation has a general operating bylaw which regulates the affairs of the corporation and provides a road map for how corporations are to govern themselves. Older condo corporations may still have the original general operating bylaw prepared by the declarant.
