CAT Orders Tenant to Stop Smoking Cannabis

Article Summary: 

The CAT has ordered a tenant to stop smoking cannabis, ruling that the tenant was in contravention of the condominium corporation's rules. The Tribunal found that the condominium's Board of Directors had reasonably concluded that the tenant was not entitled to any accommodation due to alleged medical need to smoke cannabis. The case confirms the enforceability of "no smoking" rules and sets out the need for reasonable proof and detail if the resident wishes to claim an exemption from a rule as an accommodation for human rights reasons. It's also important to involve the owner in the process.
