Article Summary: 

The article presents three cases from the Ontario courts related to short-term rentals and human rights issues in condominiums. In the first case, two condominium corporations sought to eliminate provisions allowing short-term rentals in their buildings. The court dismissed the applications, stating that the declarations protecting short-term rental rights were not inconsistent with the Condominium Act. In the second case, a resident with a service dog filed an application against another resident for discriminating against her due to her disability. The Human Rights Tribunal ordered the respondent to pay a nominal award for discrimination. The third case involved an appeal of costs granted to a condominium corporation in a small claims court. The Divisional Court limited the costs to 15 percent of the claim due to the unit owner's behavior.
