Have your say on new condominium rules

Government of Alberta
News release

Albertans are invited to attend one of five open-house events to provide feedback on condo governance issues. Input from those who own, operate, or develop condos will help guide modern, fair laws that protect condo owners and support responsible self-governance of vibrant condominium communities.
“I encourage everyone who owns, manages or develops condos to share their ideas and stories with me. One-quarter of all Albertans live in condos, and it’s important we hear their perspectives as we create fair new rules that work for everyone.”
– Stephanie McLean, Minister of Service Alberta.
The engagement sessions allow condo owners, condo corporations, managers and others to suggest improvements to condo board governance issues, including:
. Voting procedures and general meetings.
. Condominium documents.
. Financial considerations.
. Rules, rental deposits, and termination of agreements.
. Insurance requirements.
. Reserve funds.
. Condo tribunal to resolve disputes outside the courts.
An online survey will be launched after the open houses are complete. The survey will be based on input from the open houses.
