Condominium Authority of Ontario: Monthly Fees and Dispute Resolution Fees Confirmed

We had previously blogged about the fees associated with the new Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO).

The CAO has announced that it has set the fee amounts for the monthly fee and the user fees for the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) as follows:

  • CAO monthly fee per condominium unit at  $1 per month ($12 per year); and
  • CAT user fees for dispute resolution (payable by the party that files the dispute) as follows:
    Filing FeeFor access to CAT’s unassisted on-line dispute resolution system$25
    Assisted Resolution FeeFor assistance from a dedicated mediator$50
    Tribunal Decision FeeFor a decision from a dedicated adjudicator$125

    The CAO monthly fees will be payable by the Condominium Corporation. Initial communications will be sent to Condominiums later this month, with the initial payment (covering September 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018) being due on December 31, 2017.

The CAT user fees for dispute resolution are effective as of November 1, 2017. This is when the CAT will start accepting applications.
