Condo Corporation Record Requests- Condo Authority Tribunal decision

Article Summary: 

A recent decision by the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) in Canada ruled that a former board member of a condo corporation was not entitled to certain documentation, including in-camera minutes from board meetings, management reports and their attachments, and notes of informal board meetings. The CAT found that the in-camera minutes were exempt from production because they related to discussions about specific unit owners, staff, contractors, litigation, and reports from professionals. The Management Reports were not considered records under Section 55 of the Condominium Act, and the CAT accepted the condo corporation's position that they were drafts or notes and only became a record if accepted by the board and reflected in board meeting minutes. However, the CAT ordered the production of special meeting minutes, as the board had decided to incorporate specific notes into the corporation's minute book.
