Filing or joining a case as a director or manager

If you are a condominium director or manager and you want to file or join a case on behalf of the condominium corporation, there are special steps you must follow.

To determine if you can file or join a case on behalf of your condominium corporation, please read the information below.

1. Has your condominium corporation registered with the CAO?

To participate in a case at the CAT, your condominium corporation must be registered with the CAO. If you want to file or join a case and your condominium corporation has not registered, your first step is to register the corporation with the CAO.

2. My corporation is registered and I have an account– can I file or join a case?

In order to file or join a case on behalf of your condominium corporation, you must have either:

  • Completed the condominium corporation registration yourself, or
  • Received an invitation from another director, manager, or administrator

You must also have the right permissions. Specifically, you must have the ability to Act On Behalf Of the condominium corporation. These permissions are managed through the CAO’s corporate profile, and can be changed by the person who registered your condominium corporation.

3. How can I check if I can file or join a case?

You can check your permissions using the following steps:

  • Log into the CAO’s website
  • Go to the My Corporations page, and select the right condominium corporation from the list
  • Go to the Contacts page
  • Click the button next to your name, and then click View Details
  • Under the words Act On Behalf Of, your profile must be set to Yes

If your profile is set to No, you cannot file or join on behalf of a condominium corporation.

4. What if I don’t have the right permissions?

The person who registered the condominium corporation can change your permissions. If you don’t have the necessary permissions, you must let the person who registered your condominium corporation know.
