Condominium corporations may hire a condominium management company or condominium manager to oversee the corporation’s day-to-day operations. Under the Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 (CMSA), individuals and businesses that provide condominium management services in Ontario must hold a licence issued by the CMRAO. 


Licensing of condominium managers and condominium management providers (businesses) came into effect on November 1, 2017. Learn more about the types of licences offered by CMRAO, how to apply for a licence, licensing requirements, licensing exemptions, and licensing fees.

All licences issued by the CMRAO must be renewed annually. For the year 2021-2022, the renewal period for applying and paying the annual licensing fee begins on June 1 and ends on June 30. Licensed individuals and companies can continue offering condominium management services as long as they submit their renewal applications and fees by June 1, 2021.

Role and obligations of a condo manager

The role of a condominium manager involves a range of important responsibilities, as well as obligations and requirements set out under the CMSA.
