Boards & Governance
Become a Director
Thinking of getting involved in your condominium corporation by joining its board of directors? You’ll need to learn about the role of a director, their qualifications and responsibilities. The Condo Authority provides free, online mandatory training to prepare directors for making a difference in their condo community.
What directors do
Condo board directors have important responsibilities. They manage the assets of the condo corporation, ensure their community remains harmonious and vibrant, ensure the community complies with the Act & governing documents and they look out for the interests of owners who elect them.
Directors must meet a standard of care as defined in the Condo Act and run the corporation according to governance best practices.
Directors must complete CAO’s mandatory training within six months of being elected, appointed, or re-elected unless they have completed the training within the preceding 7 years.
The CAO provides foundational mandatory training online at no cost for directors and to anyone who is interested. The training takes between 3 to 6 hours to complete and is made up of 21 e-modules.. Modules don’t have to be done all at once, are easy to follow and include knowledge checks.
Advanced Optional Training
CAO also provides advanced optional training on six important topics. This training is best taken in conjunction with CAO’s Best Practices Guides that provide in-depth information on each of the six topic areas. Advanced training can only be completed following completion of the foundational director training modules.
