Overview

We are gathering 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 will explore 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).

The Condominium Property Amendment Act was passed in 2014. Since then, government engaged with condominium owners, boards and corporations to develop regulations and implement more than 50 amendments. The condominium dispute resolution tribunal is the final action item.
