Call for members of the Advisory Committee

The Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario (CMRAO) invites interested individuals to join its Advisory Committee. We are currently looking to put together a roster of individuals available for consultations in person, or via electronic surveys.

Overview

The CMRAO is a not-for-profit corporation funded by the licensing fees paid by the condo management sector and governed by an independent board of directors. The CMRAO is mandated to provide consumer protection for Ontarians living in condominiums by setting standards and enforcing mandatory licensing of condo managers and condo management firms.

The CMRAO Advisory Committee is created pursuant to Section 7.2 (4) of the CMRAO’s administrative agreement that requires the Board of Directors to establish an advisory process for direct input to the Board on issues of importance to consumers and licensees within one year of the date of designation

The Advisory Committee is not a committee of the CMRAO Board. Members will serve on a voluntary basis on the approval of the Board.

Purpose

The committee is established to:

  • Participate in consultations on specific topics upon request;
  • Provide input on emerging topics in the condominium management sector and other topics that may influence condo management;
  • Provide feedback and recommendations on the development of the CMRAO’s licencing policies, education documents, and other general documents of importance for the condo management sector.

Term

Advisory Committee members shall be appointed to terms determined by the Board. Terms shall be staggered to ensure continuity of the Committee’s functionality.

Qualifications

  • While expressions of interest from all Ontarians are welcomed, the CMRAO is primarily looking for representatives from across the condominium sector, including condo owners/residents, condo board directors, and professionals operating in the sector (managers, management companies, members of professional associations, et cetera).
  • No more than one (1) member may represent a single corporation or entity.
  • Members must be computer literate.

Expected Contribution

The Advisory Committee shall meet at the request of the Board or the Registrar for feedback on specific topics. Members can expect to meet at least once per year.

Meetings will primarily be held at the CMRAO office in Toronto. Depending on the content, teleconferencing may be arranged for members unable to attend in person.

In addition, the CMRAO may consult with the committee electronically, through surveys or other means that don’t involve travelling.

Meeting agendas and supporting documents will be sent to each member in advance of the meeting date.
