After many years of discussion and speculation, the new Condominium Act is finally here! The majority of the amendments to the Act and the new regulations under the Act are coming into force today, November 1st 2017.

The Minister of Government and Consumer Services has released an Order enacting new forms under the Act. The forms are now available on the Government’s website in French and in English. Specifically, the new forms include:

This series of new forms will make it a lot easier for condominium corporations and owners to comply with the new requirements of the Act.

Please note that not all new requirements are mandatory as of today and that the regulation provides for transition periods. For instance, the new procedure to call a meeting of owners only applies if the meeting is held on or before December 11, 2017 and the board has not sent any notice with respect to the meeting before November 1, 2017.
