  • Condo Board Training

    Posted by karebearbennettgmail-com on December 13, 2022 at 3:36 pm

    The Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO) has mandatory online training for all condo board directors. Directors who do not complete this mandatory training within six months of their election/appointment to the board are automatically disqualified from their position.

    At COF we believe in the importance of training for condo board directors, but we wonder if Ontario has gone too far in requiring training as a condition of being a director.


    Should training for condo board directors be mandatory in Alberta? Reply to this post with your thoughts.

    I guess a better question would be if there was mandatory Condo Board Certification , who would deliver it, who would verify that it has been done.

    I guess the real better question is do we need a Condo Authority of Alberta?

    The question for me is whether we want to have educated, informed Boards making the best decisions on behalf of the condo communities they serve.

    At this condo, we have a new board that refuses to read, understand or abide by the governing documents (Condominium Property Act, Condominium Property Regulation, Corporation Bylaws).

    This board has made several poor decisions including: writing resolutions that are against the Act, ignoring the sanctions process laid out in the Regulation, writing policies that are against the Bylaws and case law, allowing their friends to ignore the Bylaws, and mismanaging our monies, while telling Owners that we have extra funds available so that’s why hallways are being repainted.

    We also need educated, informed Owners!
