At long last, the official electronic version of the Condominium Act, 1998 has been updated to show the latest amendments made in December 2009. Most of those amendments were made by the Good Government Act, 2009, which amended over 300 Ontario statutes, and hence the long delay in updating the official electronic version of most statutes.
Condominium owners, directors and their professionals should always check to be sure they’re consulting the latest version of legislation and regulations before making decisions. The best way to do this is consult the Ontario Government’s e-Laws website at www.e-laws.gov.on.ca.
At the top of every statute and regulation on e-Laws is a currency date, as well as a reference to the latest amendment. See below picture.
A legislative history is also available and can be accessed from the alphabetical list of current consolidated law. The e-Laws site also hosts repealed statutes and allows you to view the wording of a specific statute at a specific point in time, which is very handy if you need to know the state of the law as of a certain date. Detailed help and FAQs are available throughout the site.
As a special feature, we’re offering a weekend giveaway that tests your knowledge about our Condo Act and helps you get to know e-Laws a little better.
