Condominium Manager Magazine

CM Magazine is the flagship quarterly publication of the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO) and for more than 30 years has served as the leading source of in-depth coverage of industry news, issues, information, education and best practices for condominium management professionals and service providers.

CM Magazine has a printed circulation of 7,000+ per issue and a digital circulation of approximately 400 views per issue.  The audience consists of Condominium Managers, Condominium Management Companies, Industry Services & Trades Providers, and Condominium Boards. 

Article submission is not open to the general public. ACMO members in good standing may contribute articles. From time to time we will reach out to the broader condominium industry and request articles from non-members and other industry experts (e.g. government partners, educational partners, legal experts), if the subject matter requires a distinctive perspective that cannot be addressed by an individual ACMO member or company.

A Growing Industry Brings Opportunity & Responsibility

Message from the President || Eric Plant, RCM ACMO President

As you open the pages of this month’s edition of the CM Magazine, I hope this letter finds you thriving in your respective roles and ready to engage with the wealth of information we have in store for you.

As you are well aware, this is a time of significant growth within our industry, a reality that brings with it as much opportunity as it does responsibility. The sheer pace of development is extraordinary – the development at a single intersection in Vaughan now rivals what is being built in most other Canadian cities outside Vancouver, Ottawa, and the GTA. It is indeed an exciting time, one that our industry should embrace and celebrate.

Fraud & Crime

From the large-scale con jobs to more minor discreet thefts, condominiums seem designed to be targeted for this kind of activity.

How Will the New Work-From-Home Movement Affect Condo Amenities?

The Future of Condos

Feature || Eric Plant, RCM

It may be hard to remember, but not that long ago, people used to dream about the opportunity to work from home. The idea of sleeping in, wearing pyjama pants all day and leaving the car in the driveway seemed like the ideal scenario! Hindsight is always 20/20, but it is hard to see how we could have been so wrong.
