Article Summary: 

In the case of Boodram v. Peel Standard Condominium Corporation No. 843, the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) clarified the difference between 'rules' and 'policies' in the enforcement context. The CAT ruled that condominiums cannot use 'policies' to clarify and enforce vague requirements in their governing documents. Instead, any uncertainties in enforcement must be clarified through 'rules' properly enacted with the support of unit owners under section 58 of the Condominium Act, 1998.
