Diversity and Discrimination on the Condo Board

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:
June 24, 2021
Article Summary: 

Condo boards are often overrepresented by older and retired individuals, and lack of age diversity can create conflict. Rules or by-laws to ensure greater diversity are illegal and can be abused. Age, sex, ethnic or other limitations on who can serve as a condo director are not allowed. Age and ethnic considerations should be secondary to experience, dedication and commitment when building a board for a condo corporation. Term limits, staggering terms, amending by-laws, holding meetings using smartphones or Skype, and establishing committees are all ways to encourage individuals to participate in condo governance. Older people bring experience and common-sense, while younger people bring new ideas and are more willing to invest in them.
