ACMO will no longer require RCMs to track continuing education credits for the purposes of renewing their ACMO membership and RCM designation – maintenance of a valid CMRAO General License will suffice.

The Ontario Government recently announced an ambitious plan to build 1.5 million homes in 10 years, including a significant number of new condominiums. This raises concerns within the condo management industry about how these new buildings will be managed, considering a severe shortage of licensed condominium managers already exists.
