Engagement status: Paused for red tape review
Ministry responsible: Service Alberta

Overview

The Condominium Property Amendment Act was passed in December 2014. Since then, we've been working to develop the regulations to bring more than 50 amendments into force.

Engagement timeline

Governance regulations – Paused for red tape review (summer 2019)

Stakeholders in the condominium sector have recently told us they are concerned that new condominium regulations scheduled to come into place this summer will cause a significant administrative burden.

These regulations were originally scheduled to come into effect on July 1, 2019.

However, we are pausing those regulations coming into force until we can review them, meet with stakeholders and determine if adjustments need to be made to strike the right balance without increasing red tape and administrative burdens. Those consultations will take place in the summer of 2019.

The new date for these regulations coming into force is January 1, 2020.

Outcomes

This pause supports government efforts to reduce red tape to ensure regulatory processes are necessary, effective, efficient and proportional to the outcomes they are trying to achieve.

Future stages

Condo manager education and licensing - Under development

We are working closely with the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) on the creation of an education and licensing program for condo managers. For more information visit the RECA’s Condominium Manager Regulation Consultation page.
