The Promise of 2021: A Letter from the President of ACMO

ACMO Continues to Support You


Dear ACMO Member,

We hope you and your family enjoyed a safe and enjoyable holiday season and got some well-deserved rest after an unprecedented year dominated by the pandemic which redefined how we conduct business and manage our communities.  

The New Year is upon us and unfortunately, the pandemic continues to present us with challenges. Recent modelling data suggested Ontario is in crisis and in danger of overwhelming hospital ICUs so the Ontario government enacted a second Provincial State of Emergency effective January 14th. The Stay-at-Home Order and enhanced enforcement measures are designed to reduce mobility and help address the COVID-19 crisis.

Under the new order, property management and maintenance services are still considered essential services and all of the practices we have been employing to protect our communities since last March still apply. In other words, not much has changed, however, it is worth reminding managers of the state of emergency instructions, summarized here:   

For more detail on the workplace safety measures and State of Emergency restrictions visit covid-19.ontario.ca.  

As we did throughout the initial wave of the pandemic, ACMO will continue serving as a clearinghouse of pandemic information to help keep you up to date on best practices as they relate to condominium management.


Notwithstanding the lockdown and the devastating impacts the pandemic, at ACMO we are working very hard to implement our new strategic plan and pivot our operations to deliver outstanding value to our members, albeit virtually. Some of the initiatives we are pursuing this year include:

The arrival of COVID-19 vaccines gives us hope that we will eventually get the upper hand on the pandemic and life will return to normal, perhaps this fall.  In the meantime, just as we did throughout 2020, we must all remain vigilant in following the advice of the government and local health officials to keep our condominium communities safe. 

Until we can once again meet in person, take care and stay safe!
