Appealing Decisions From the Condominium Authority Tribunal

Publication date:

Article Summary: 

This blog discusses the appeal process for decisions made by the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT). The author notes that while CAT decisions can only be appealed on a question of law, there have not yet been any court decisions on this matter. However, recent cases in British Columbia may provide some guidance. The blog mentions the Allard v the Owners, Strata Plan case, which highlights issues that could constitute questions of law. While leave from the court is not required to appeal a CAT decision, it is likely that Ontario courts will consider similar issues as questions of law. The purpose of the CAT is to provide a timely way for condominium disputes to be resolved outside the traditional court system, and the appeals process continues with this objective by limiting appeals to only questions of law.
