Information on this page relates to a normal licensing year, which runs from July 1 to June 30. As a result of the exceptional circumstances presented by COVID-19, the CMRAO has made the decision to extend the period for application and payment of licence renewals for the 2020–21 licensing year. Licensed individuals and providers (businesses) can continue providing condominium management services as long as renewal applications and annual licensing fees are submitted by September 8, 2020.
For the 2020-21 licensing year, CMRAO will calculate the annual licensing fees for providers based on employment information reported by the providers and individual licensees as of July 31, 2020.
All licences issued by the CMRAO expire unless they are renewed annually. The regular licence year runs from July 1 to June 30, so the deadline to complete the renewal is midnight on June 30. Licensed individuals and providers (businesses) can continue
providing condominium management services as long as renewal applications and annual licensing fees are submitted by the June 30 deadline.
Starting on June 1, licensees can submit their renewal applications by logging into their online account, completing the renewal application form and paying the annual licensing fee.
All licensed condominium management providers (businesses) are required to pay an annual licensing fee of $799 plus $327 for each individual they employ as of May 31 of the previous licensing year who holds a General Licence, Transitional General Licence,
or Limited Licence. CMRAO will calculate the annual licensing fees for providers based on employment information reported by the providers and individual licensees as of May 31 each year. CMRAO will not process adjustments or refunds.
It is important to note that all condominium management providers are required to notify the CMRAO’s registrar within five days of the date of commencement or termination of the employment of every condominium manager that the provider employs and, in
the case of termination of employment of a condominium manager, the reason for the termination. Condominium Management Providers should not wait until the renewal period to update this information.
Licence Renewal Process
All licences issued by the CMRAO expire unless they are renewed annually.
