Litigation Privilege For Property Managers Under The CMSA

Under the new Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 (the “CMSA”), property managers and property management companies will be required to submit themselves to investigations by inspectors who are appointed by the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (the “CMRAO”), the administrative authority created in July of 2016 to enforce the CMSA.

Under Section 60(1) of the CMSA, these inspectors do not need to obtain a search warrant or a court order first before initiating an investigation to ensure that the subject property manager is complying with the CMSA and its regulations, or to deal with a complaint about the property manager that the CMRAO has received under Section 57 of the CMSA.

Under Section 60(3)(c) and Section 60(6) of the CMSA, the property manager is required to produce a document or record when requested to do so by the inspector.

However, a recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada may provide property managers and property management companies with a temporary reprieve from having to produce such documents or records upon an inspector’s demand.
