A condo board is responsible for providing good governance for the corporation, and fostering a positive community culture.  Each condominium is a unique community that is made up of people from different walks of life, with a range of backgrounds, beliefs, interests and perspectives.   

The CAO is mandated to provide training to condominium directors about their responsibilities and legal obligations. For the next two months, the CAO is offering four pilot modules in order to obtain feedback from condo owners, residents or members of the public.  

NOTE: Directors of condominium boards will be required to complete mandatory training at a later date in order to continue as a board member.  Completing the modules below will not count towards this requirement.  Stay tuned to our website for more information on CAO’s mandatory training program for directors.
