ACMO Burlington Conference – A Quick Reflection

February 9, 2018

Legal Update

By: Patricia Elia

I recently had the pleasure of participating at the ACMO Burlington Conference. My congratulations to ACMO on a well-structured and informative day. The day started with representatives from each of the Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO) and the Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (CMRAO) bringing everyone up-to-date on the implementation of both of these newly formed organizations. During the course of the round table discussions, I had the opportunity to discuss “Aging in Place”, which continues to be a meaningful and multidimensional discussion. We covered a gamut of topics, from shifting the paradigm around aging to managing aging assets. I was delighted with the willingness to see mobility concerns as an issue that affects all ages, and the thoughtfulness at the table around capital asset replacement that takes accessibility into design. Creative dialogues on how to inform community members of local resources also helped our analysis on how to manage risk and divert risk away from condominiums, which have a very definitive scope of responsibility under the Condominium Act, 1998.
