The CAO is supporting condo corporations to meet their Condo Return legal requirements through our user-friendly online filing system, instructional emails, helpful step-by-step guides, and staff who can assist corporations at any stage of the Condo Returns process.
The CAO’s online Condo Returns system is designed to make the returns process as easy and efficient as possible for condo corporations. For example, you will only need to enter (or update) your condo corporation’s information once and the system will automatically generate the one or more returns that are applicable to your corporation at the time of filing.
Condo corporations are legally required to file a Notice of Change with the CAO when information filed in a return has changed. The Notice of Change is to be filed within 30 days of the change(s) and must indicate what information changed and when the change(s) took effect.
A Notice of Change should also be filed to correct any information previously provided in a Condo Return.
