Answers to your questions about CAO’s Condo Registry
The Condo Registry is a publicly available searchable database of condo corporations in Ontario based on their filings with the Condo Authority. Corporations are legally required to file an annual return with CAO which provides information on every condo corporation in Ontario, including the date it was created, its address for service, number of voting units, board of directors information, management service providers and more. This helps consumers by providing greater transparency about a corporation’s status.
All condo corporations must file required condo returns and pay associated fees on time. If any information previously filed in a return changes, the condo corporation must also file a notice of change within 30 days of the change to update that information. Timely filings ensure that the condo corporation’s profile on the Condo Registry is accurate and up-to-date.
Late filing or late payment can result in late fees, or in a registrar’s certificate being issued on the Condo Registry certifying that the corporation has not met its filing obligations under the Condo Act.
