Quotes from condo experts

“The reforms the government will introduce today include a quick, low-cost dispute resolution system, a plan for licensing and training managers enhanced consumer protection, and a mandate for better and clearer information for buyers, condominium owners, residents and directors. Through these and many other improvements, Ontario’s condominium community can look forward to a bright future.”

— Armand Conant, Condominium Law Expert and Partner, Shibley Righton, LLP; a Past-President, Canada Condominium Institute (Toronto Chapter)

“The Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario is thrilled that the government has moved quickly to introduce legislation to modernize the Condominium Act and create stronger protections for Ontario’s condo owners. For the past 38 years, ACMO has worked to educate condo managers and provide qualified professionals to serve condo owners and residents. Ontario needs condo managers who are qualified and well-trained, and we look forward to supporting the government as it puts this proposed new licensing body in place.”

— Dean McCabe, Board of Directors and Former President, Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario

“I applaud the government for taking this important step to enable professional licensing and oversight of condominium managers in Ontario. This Bill goes a long way towards strengthening protections for condo residents across the province by ensuring condos are managed only by qualified and professional condominium managers.”

–John Oakes, Chief Executive Officer, Brookfield Condominium Services Ltd.

“In late 2009, my small 15-unit condo building had $250K fraudulently stolen by the property manager. The proposed condo legislation will create strong financial management rules for condos and license the province’s 2,500 condo managers. These changes will help disable rogue property managers, prevent fraud and mismanagement, and protect condo owners from issues similar to the ones my condo building faced.”

–Sandy Steffen, Owner Advocate

  • Strong financial management rules for condo corporations to help prevent financial and organizational mismanagement
  • Better governance requirements for condo boards, including training for condo directors

Local Poverty Reduction Fund – $50 Million – for Canadian Groups in Ontario: Apply in May 2015

The following video presents Local Poverty Reduction Fund to Support Community Driven Solutions:

  • The presentation starts at mark 0:23 seconds.

“Ontario is investing $50 million to support grassroots community partners in lifting people and families out of poverty.

The Local Poverty Reduction Fund will support innovative local solutions and help community organizations demonstrate their progress, evaluate their programs and build a collective body of evidence of poverty reduction initiatives that work.

Reducing poverty means investing in the right supports that improve outcomes for people. Ontario’s work to fight poverty has made a difference in the lives of children and families, including preventing thousands from falling into poverty during the recession. Despite these successes, we know there is more work to do.

There are many local, grassroots and innovative programs in communities that are making a difference in the lives of people living in poverty. Using the evidence gathered from these programs, the government will work to apply best practices across the province and focus on funding programs that are proven to work and that can expand over time.

Fighting poverty is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.”

Local Poverty Reduction Fund is $50 million that will be invested over six years in Ontario, Canada.

The fund is available to a wide range of groups. Not-for-profit organizations, registered charities, broader public sector organizations such as municipal governments, district social service administration boards (DSSAB) as well as Aboriginal communities and organizations can apply for the fund.

Fund Criteria 

To be considered for funding, applicants must meet the following criteria: Read more of Local Poverty Reduction Fund – $50 Million – for Canadian Groups in Ontario: Apply in May 2015
