Step 4: Condominium Authority Tribunal

You may be able to file an application with the Condominium Authority Tribunal if you tried the previous steps and they did not work. The Tribunal provides an online dispute resolution system that helps condo communities resolve condo disputes conveniently, quickly and affordably

About the Tribunal

CAT uses a three-stage dispute resolution process:

  • In Stage 1 – Negotiation you work with the other parties to try to resolve the dispute
  • In Stage 2 – Mediation you work with a mediator to try to resolve the dispute
  • In Stage 3 – Tribunal Decision, you will be able to make your case to a Tribunal Member in an online hearing. The Member will then issue a binding order

Only owners, mortgagees and condo corporations can file a vehicle-related application.

The Tribunal can deal with disputes about provisions related to vehicles in your condo’s governing documents. Examples of common disputes that can be filed:

  • Disputes about compliance with provisions in the corporation’s governing documents related to vehicles, and/or related indemnification/compensation provisions.
  • Disputes about the consistency and/or reasonableness of those provisions.
  • Disputes about the applicability of those provisions.
  • Disputes about indemnification relating to vehicles.
