The Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO) is pleased to advise that on April 24, 2020, the Government of Ontario took further action to support corporations, including condominium corporations, co-operative corporations, business corporations, and not-for-profit corporations during the COVID-19 outbreak with amendments to Ontario Regulation 107/20 (the “Emergency Order”).
Another Emergency Order was issued by the Provincial Government of Ontario on April 24th, 2020 at 5:45 p.m. This order, made pursuant to section 7.1(2) of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (“EMCPA”), amends Regulation 107/20.
Message from the CEO/Registrar of the CMRAO about Amended Emergency Order for Virtual Meetings and AGMs
Many condominiums Boards are contemplating whether or not visitors should be banned, especially those with dense populations and highly vulnerable residents.
PHO has developed the resources below to support stakeholders with the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). These are posted on our website for reference but the most current versions of all public, public health, and health care guidance can be found on the Ministry of Health's website.
With the summer 2020 season approaching and COVID-19 coronavirus causing major disruptions to nearly all aspects of life in Ontario, condominium corporations will need to think carefully about whether they can still fulfill their obligations under the contracts that they have entered into.
Unfortunately, due to the contagious nature of COVID-19, it is likely a matter of when, and not if, a resident will test positive, or be placed into isolation for being in contact with someone who has tested positive. As such, corporations need to be prepared.
The following hard-surface disinfectants meet Health Canada's requirements for emerging viral pathogens. These authorized disinfectants may be used against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
CFAA and many government agencies consider the inspection and testing as well as repair work provided by our members to be an “essential” service when buildings are either empty or fully occupied.
As the province enters another week of social distancing and self-isolation, many condominium Managers and Boards may be wondering how the approach to certain building operations should be changed to ensure public health and safety.
