It is estimated that almost 9,000 condo corporations have been created in Ontario since 1967, but no more than a half dozen have ever been terminated.

To explore a relatively obscure but increasingly important area of our condo law, the Real Property and Civil Litigation sections of the Ontario Bar Association have teamed up to present an educational session on court-ordered termination of condo corporations on Monday Tuesday, September 22, 2014.

Here’s the blurb:

The recent termination of Simcoe Condominium Corporation No. 32 is believed to be the first termination of an Ontario condominium corporation under court supervision and one of only a small handful of condo terminations in Ontario’s legal history. Attend this program to hear directly from the lawyers who handled the termination of SCC 32 about the steps and procedures undertaken to terminate a condominium corporation. Through this, you will gain practical insight into a novel area of condominium law – one that may become increasingly pertinent to both real property and litigation lawyers as older condominium corporations begin to reach structural life expectancy.

The program is open to members and non-members (including non-lawyers), either by attending in person at the OBA in downtown Toronto or by live webcast at a computer near you.

If you’re downtown, consider attending in person. The hospitality is warm and the food is good.

Those outside Toronto (or too shy to dine amongst a room full of lawyers!) or people pressed for time can opt for the live webcast option at a reduced price ($40 for members and $60 for non-members).

Here are registration links for attending in person, and for live webcast. Please be careful to choose your desired option (in-person vs. live webcast) accurately.

The evening includes Q&A with the speakers.  As program co-chair, I would be glad to ask the speakers your questions if you send them to me in advance. Alternatively, ask them yourself at the in-person session or submit them electronically during the webcast.

I’ll be back.
