Starting May 1, 2018, regulations under the Condo Act that support the installation of electric vehicle charging systems (EVCS) in condominiums take effect.
On March 26, 2018, the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services informed you that the Status Certificate and Status Certificate in Amalgamation forms under the Condo Act have also been updated to address the EVCS changes. The new versions of these forms are dated March 23, 2018 and will also take effect as of May 1, 2018. They are now available on the Government of Ontario web page for Condo Act forms.
The Preliminary Notice of Meeting of Owners and Notice of Meeting of Owners forms under the Condo Act have been updated to address these new changes. These forms have also been updated to reflect recent input from the public and condo sector on ways that the forms could be improved.
The new versions of these forms are effective as of May 1, 2018 and are now available on the Government of Ontario web page for Condo Act forms.

Condo Market to level off in 2018: Report
The CMRAO issues four types of licenses. For individuals, there are three types of licences you can apply for depending on your level of experience and education in condo management. The fourth type of licence is for condo management companies.
In the interest of consumer protection, CMRAO licensees are required to follow a number of rules as outlined in the Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 (CMSA) and under the Code of Ethics regulation. These rules were written by the provincial government, but are enforced by the CMRAO.
The CMRAO’s complaints process provides an impartial assessment of concerns regarding the condominium management services provided by licensed managers and management companies.
CCI promotes best practices within condominium through its Code of Ethics for ACCIs. We have also developed a suggested Code of Ethics for Condominium Directors. While it is obviously up to individual Directors and Boards to decide whether they will subscribe to the Code, it does consist of best practices for Directors and we encourage Directors and Boards to voluntarily comply and enforce the Code.
