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.

On December 16, 2016 a draft of the proposed regulations for the Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 was released for public consideration and comment.

In 1977, a small group of volunteers realized the growing need for a single source of information for the province’s early condominium managers and condo owners. The idea for the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario was conceived.

Celebrating 40: Forty years ago, a small group of condominium managers found themselves at the vanguard of a relatively new and exciting industry in Ontario. The time was right in 1977 to mobilize and organize with a formal association to represent the goals of this collective alliance. No one could have foreseen the tremendous growth of condominiums that we’re witnessing today. But the founding members of ACMO did anticipate and establish the RCM designation for professional property managers that is now recognized and requested by corporation boards.
The Annual Condominium Conference is the showcase educational and networking event for the condominium industry in Ontario. Every year the conference continues to grow in stature. As you can see by our photo spread on pages 48–49, this is reflected in consistent increases in attendance by condominium managers and directors, in trade show participation by suppliers and professionals, and in the interest shown by speakers.
Savvy managers and directors should always be on the lookout for opportunities to ‘go green’. New condo constructions are often built to LEED® standards or incorporate eco-advantages such as energy efficient windows, green roofs, solar panels, low voltaic paints and LED lighting.
At High Park Lofts (437 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto) which is a geothermal building, we have changed toilets (the Board gave each resident a rebate of $100.00 for each low flow toilet installed), changed faucet aerators (the Board paid all the cost) and will be offering all residents the opportunity to replace shower heads with low-flow shower heads all at the Board’s costs.
