Green Light Given for Mandatory Qualifications for Condo Managers

For those following the revisions to the Condominium Act: Tracy MacCharles, the Minister responsible for Consumer Services, announced last Thursday that the Ontario government has given the “green light” to bring in mandatory qualifications for condominium managers.

A group representing condominium owners, residents and industry experts will examine what these qualifications for condominium managers should be and is expected to report back to the Ministry in the summer of 2014. This same group will also determine how a self-funded, independent regulatory authority may be set up to oversee the qualifications.

The Ministry is seeking input from the public. You may share your thoughts on this issue with the Ministry by e-mail at, mail or through Twitter (@ontarioconsumer/ #oncondo), or Facebook (
