Look at our timeline infographic. It will help you understand when the new Act and Regulations will apply to new and pre-existing condominium developments. 

What can you expect to see in the new Regulations?

The Regulations will clarify procedures and requirements, including but not limited to:

Try to resolve the dispute through civil conversation. Or, put your complaint in writing and ask to speak to the board of directors at a meeting. If the dispute cannot be resolved, you may want to get legal advice.
