Article Summary: 

The blog discusses the reopening of amenities such as gyms and recreation spaces in condominiums in Ontario, and whether requiring users to sign a waiver of liability is sufficient. The blog explains that waivers are enforceable, but their terms must be brought to the signer's attention for them to be valid. The blog recommends that condos using waivers take steps to ensure the document is signed properly, such as posting signs, bolding important text, and having staff available to answer any questions. The blog also emphasizes the importance of observing recommended health and safety protocols when reopening amenities.
