FALL 2015

In This Issue:

Each of us wants to feel safe and our home is the primary place where we should feel the safest.

We devote this issue of CM magazine to security.The overriding theme in our articles is that security is not just the focus for guards and security providers, unit owners and residents can also play a significant role in the safety of their condominium community.

Managers are awaiting the next steps in the reform of the Condo Act. To help you navigate the ongoing process of enacting the new Bill 106 into law, please see our Timeline that appears on page 39.

CM magazine is your authority for all things condo focused. You are encouraged to follow ACMO on social media for up-to-the-minute news. We are all in this together!

On the Cover:

This issue is all about ensuring adequate protection for our single-most important investment – our condominiums and town homes.
