Nuisances, Annoyances, or Disruptions? Take it up with the CAT

Publication date:
February 3, 2022
Article Summary: 

The jurisdiction of the Condominium Authority Tribunal (CAT) in Ontario has been expanded as of January 1, 2022, to include certain nuisances, annoyances, or disruptions in condominiums. Section 117 of the Condominium Act, 1998, now prohibits any condition or activity likely to damage the property or cause injury/illness to an individual. It also prohibits activities resulting in unreasonable noise, odour, smoke, vapour, light, or vibration that is a nuisance or annoyance to an individual. The CAT's jurisdiction will also cover disputes related to governing documents and indemnification concerning nuisance disputes. However, dangerous conditions or activities continue to be heard by the Superior Court of Justice.
