Article Summary: 

The board of directors of a condominium corporation asked if they could install surveillance cameras in the common element hallways of their property. They considered privacy concerns, challenges from other unit owners, and the requirements under Section 97 of the Condominium Act. To ensure resident privacy, the corporation should obtain resident consent, ensure security cameras do not point towards the doors to units, and create a video camera surveillance policy. These requirements are found in the Condominium Act, 1998. Section 97 of the Act outlines three requirements for the installation of new surveillance cameras: no notice, notice and/or a vote, and only operating funds can be used.
