  • Bill 106 (the Protecting Condominium Owners Act, 2015) received Royal Assent in the Ontario legislature on December 3, 2015. Bill 106 is the result of an 18-month public engagement process, the Condominium Act Review (the “Review”), which involved condominium owners, developers, managers, and other experts working together to modernize the condo law regime. The landscape has changed dramatically since the original Condominium Act, 1998 was enacted. Currently, approximately 1.3 million Ontarians are condominium owners and more than half of all new residential units built in the province are condominiums.
