Education

  • Directors must complete educational courses administered by the Condominium Authority of Ontario.
  • The courses must be completed within six (6) months of being elected to the board.
  • The courses must be completed at least once every seven (7) years.
  • People who are already serving as directors on November 1, 2017 are exempt from this education requirement, unless they are subsequently re-elected or appointed.
  • The condominium corporation is to reimburse the director for the cost associated with the courses.
  • At the current time there are on-line training modules on the Condominium Authority of Ontario‚Äôs website, but these modules do not count toward the actual training that will be required.
