Coming to a Compromise: Condominiums, Cannabis, and Human Rights

Andrea Daly and Nancy Houle

Article Summary: 

This blog discusses the potential conflict between human rights and condominium rules regarding cannabis use. Condominium corporations must accommodate residents who require an accommodation for human rights reasons, but what happens when one owner's accommodation conflicts with another's? The blog suggests that the ideal approach is for condominium corporations to find a compromise that accommodates both parties. This may include obtaining expert opinions, requesting supplementary medical information, and co-operating with the affected residents to find a suitable solution for all parties. However, if no mutually acceptable resolution can be found, the condominium board may need to seek directions from a court. The blog also discusses a court case where competing human rights were balanced, indicating that courts will seek to balance the interests of all parties in complex situations. Overall, the goal for every condominium should be harmonious community living for all.
