Condomadness website: “The primary purpose of a
homeowners association is to enforce the rules for landscaping,
leasing, pets and parking. Basically, anything that could help keep
property values up.” —Richard DeBoest
There are about 10,000 condominium corporations in Ontario and although
they all fall under the guidelines of the Condominium Act, they are
independent nonprofit corporations, run by a handful of amateur
volunteer directors with different abilities, motivations,
qualifications and skills.
All of these condos are governed with extremely little oversight and
with wild variations of effectiveness and competence.
