Overview

We gathered input from Albertans to help us build an effective and affordable system to resolve disputes between condominium owners, managers, boards and corporations.

To develop a fair condominium dispute resolution tribunal without unnecessary red tape, the engagement explored the following topics:

  • tribunal funding, including yearly contributions from owners and user fees
  • resolution processes
  • public disclosure of decisions

Under the current system, backlogs in Alberta courts, court system complexity and a lack of affordable dispute resolution processes prevent the condominium community from efficiently accessing justice.

Previous consultations identified the need to create a tribunal – an overseeing body that would hear disputes and help resolve them through negotiation, mediation or adjudication (judgement).
