When the CAO opened its doors on September 1, 2017, it was the first time that all condo corporations across Ontario were required to register with the CAO and pay the assessment fee covering the period September 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018.  The CAO thanks the over 7,000 condo corporations that have registered so far.

In response to feedback from those condo corporations that have already registered and in an effort to reach the remaining 4,000 condo corporations, the registration deadline has been extended to February 28, 2018.

Registering your condo corporation with the CAO will enable payment of the current assessment fee that is due, and also prepare condo corporations for the new legal requirement to file condo returns. The CAO’s online system for filing condo returns will launch on March 1, 2018.

For condo managers and directors - before registering

To register, a unique invitation code must be used. To receive an invitation code, please contact the CAO at info@condoauthorityontario.ca.

Please ensure that the following information is ready before registering:

  • condo corporation’s unique invitation code from the CAO
  • details about the type of condo corporation being registered
  • service address for the condo corporation
  • date that the condo corporation was created (the date that the declaration and description were registered at on of the province’s land registry offices)
  • number of units and voting units (the number of voting units will be used to calculate the assessment amount)
  • names, email addresses, and appointment date for condo directors (this information is optional)
  • name, email address and firm (if applicable) for your condo manager (this information is optional)

Once the corporation has been registered, the assessment amount can be paid online by credit card or Interac® Online, or by sending the CAO a cheque, certified cheque, or money order. The  2017-18 assessment fee for the period September 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018 is due to the CAO by February 28, 2018.
