Article Summary: 

The article discusses the shift in the snow and ice removal paradigm in condominiums due to the Occupiers Liability Act in Alberta. The Act requires written notice of a claim for damages resulting from personal injury caused by snow or ice within 60 days of the injury. The condominium corporation is considered the occupier and must be provided with this notice before someone can sue for a slip and fall on ice/snow. A comprehensive snow plan is essential, involving collaboration between the condo board, property manager, and contractor to establish standards, preventive measures, and regular inspections. The article also highlights the environmental impact of excessive salt usage and suggests ways to reduce it. Paradigm shifting and proactive investment in safety and environmental protection are encouraged.
