McGuinty Government Committed To A Fair And Informed Marketplace
July 26, 2010 | Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services | http://www.sse.gov.on.ca/mcs/en/Page...26Jul2010.aspx
Ontario has launched an online survey to learn about the experiences of condominium owners across the province.
The survey, posted at www.ontario.ca/condos, asks condo owners about their experiences with buying and living in condos, as well as with condo corporations, boards of directors, repairs and maintenance, reserve funds and dispute resolution.
Condos are an increasingly popular form of home ownership and the survey will provide a broad snapshot of Ontarians’ experiences with condos. Information provided with the survey will help condo owners learn more about their rights and responsibilities under the Condominium Act and the survey results will also help inform government.
Condo owners can also receive more information about the survey through their local Member of Provincial Parliament’s (MPP) office or by calling the Ministry of Consumer Services toll-free at 1-800-889-9768.
“Learning about the experiences of Ontario’s condo owners will help us better understand the marketplace. It also helps us get consumers the information they need so they can make informed condo-buying choices.”
— Sophia Aggelonitis, Minister of Consumer Services.
- Sales of condominiums in the Greater Toronto Area hit a record in the first quarter of 2010 according to independent research. Developers sold 5,415 new condos in the first three months of this year, up 491 per cent (nearly six times more) from the same time in 2009.
ARE YOU A CONDOMINIUM OWNER?
We want to hear from you. The Ontario government is interested in learning about your experiences as a condominium owner.
Across Ontario, condominium ownership is increasingly popular. Owning a condominium means that you have different rights and responsibilities than if you own a house or rent. It’s important to know these rights and responsibilities.
This survey asks questions and provides information on the following topics:
- Condominium Ownership
- Condominium Decision-Making
- Condominium Maintenance
- Interacting with your Board of Directors.
You have the option of answering all or just some of the questions.
