On this page you will find all the information you need to assist your condominium corporation in meeting its legal obligation to file condominium returns and notices of change with the Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO). Before you begin filing a return or a notice of change, the CAO strongly encourages you to review the information below.

All condo corporations are legally required to file a notice of change with the CAO when certain information filed in a return has changed or needs to be corrected. Notices of change must be filed within 30 days of the change(s) indicating what has changed and when the change(s) took effect.
