Ontario Condominium Act 1998
The Act is online for easy reference.

Ontario Condominium Act 1990
This Act was repealed in May 2001. What is very interesting is Sections 56, 57 & 58 which should have given condo owners a Condominium Ontario (condo office) and a cheap and quick disputes mechanism.

A guide to small claims court
Amer Mushtaq is a Toronto-based lawyer with nearly a decade of legal experience has an on-line course on understanding how to file and argue your small claims applications. The price is $199.

It should be of help to someone who doesn't understand the system and has been served or wants to start their own small claims action.

However, if an owner is involved in a dispute with a condo board, I would urge you to pay for at least one consultation with a lawyer who specializes in condo law because condo law is complicated and getting an expert's advice would be prudent.
