Condominium Forms

The Government of Ontario has created a number of forms to be used under the Condominium Act, 1998. Some of these forms are mandatory and must be used and some are optional. The Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO) is pleased to host and provide access to the 19 condominium forms which have been delegated by the Minister of Government and Consumer Services.

Please contact the CAO if you require information about what must be included in each form. Please note, however, that the CAO cannot assist you in filling out the forms or provide you with an interpretation of the legal requirements. If you need assistance or an interpretation of the legal requirements, you may wish to seek legal advice. If you cannot find the form you are looking for, you may wish to search the Government of Ontario website by clicking here.

Instructions

Condo forms can be accessed through two separate links, either as a fillable form or as a non-fillable form.

The fillable form can be filled out on your computer, which you can then save and print.

The non-fillable form cannot be filled out online and must be printed, and then filled out by hand. For best results, please save the form to your computer, and then print it.

Important: For the best experience when accessing forms, the CAO recommends using the browser Google Chrome. You can access the link to download and install Google Chrome by clicking here.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am having trouble opening the forms, what can I do?

If you are having trouble opening a form in your internet browner please ensure that you are using a computer. The forms may not open or may be difficult to use on mobile devices (e.g., tablets, smartphones etc.).

If you are having trouble opening a form in your internet browser, please be sure that you are using an updated version of the browser. The forms may not open or may be difficult to use on older browser versions. Please note that the condo forms may not be compatible with Internet Explorer.

I see a pop-up message when I click on the form and it does not open, what can I do?

Depending on the internet browser you are using, you may encounter problems with pop-up blockers. You may wish to disable the pop-up blocker feature for this website only, known as whitelisting.

Most pop-up blockers for Windows users can be temporarily disabled by holding the “CTRL” key (located in the lower left corner of your keyboard) while clicking on a link. Hold the “CTRL” key while clicking on the form link to disable the pop-up blocker.

There are layout issues when filling out the form. Some tables do not condense when I delete information, and some sections do not disappear when I uncheck them, what can I do?

When filling out the fillable form through your internet browser, the form is dynamic which means that text boxes or tables will expand as you enter information and checking certain boxes may cause items to appear or disappear, as necessary.

This may lead to layout issues in the fillable form. For example, a table may expand as you enter in information but does not condense after the information is deleted. These layout issues will be corrected once the form is saved and opened with a PDF reader.

The form will not accept the date I input, what can I do?

When filling out forms, some symbols may not be accepted as part of the date format. To ensure that the date is accepted, please use the dropdown date menu to select a date or use slashes to separate the date. For example, please use YYYY/MM/DD rather than YYYY*MM*DD.

I do not have enough space to fill out a particular section in the form, what can I do?
