Legislative Newsflash Ontario – The CAT Gets More Powers - Aug 2020

Publication date:
August 28, 2020
Article Summary: 

The Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) in Ontario, which has so far dealt only with disputes over condominium records, will receive expanded powers effective October 1, 2020. The amendments to Ontario Regulation 179/17 under the Condominium Act, 1998 will allow the CAT to handle disputes related to pets or other animals, vehicles, parking and storage, and chargebacks related to these matters. This change aims to redirect these types of disputes away from mediation, arbitration, and courts to the CAT. Both owners and condominium corporations will be obligated to have these disputes heard by the CAT instead of seeking resolution through other means.
