CMRAO Reducing Fees for the 2019–20 Licensing Year

The CMRAO is committed to being transparent and accountable for the efficient use of licensing fees that allow the organization to effectively carry out its mandated responsibilities as the regulator of the condo management sector under the Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 (CMSA).

For the 2019–20 licensing year, the CMRAO is reducing licensing fees for all classes of licences. Current licensees who renew their licences, as well as all new applicants who apply for a licence after June 1, 2019, will pay the new fees (reduced by 6.6%).

The new licensing fees are:

*Per licensee employed by the company

The reduced fees apply to:

  • All licence renewal applications for the 2019–20 licensing year
  • All new licence applications submitted after June 1, 2019

As the regulatory body that provides oversight of condo managers and condo management companies, the CMRAO continues to protect consumers in Ontario’s complex and rapidly growing condo industry.

Advance Notice: Licence Renewal Period

The CMRAO will begin accepting applications and payments for licence renewals on June 1, 2019. The regular licensing year ends on June 30, but since this date falls on the weekend of a statutory holiday, all applications and payments must be submitted online by midnight on July 2, 2019. You will receive another renewal notice on May 1, as a well as a reminder on June 1, when the renewal portal opens.

As a reminder to licensed management companies, please ensure that you maintain an up-to-date list of licensees employed by your company. Your annual licensing fee will be set based on records as at 11:59 p.m. on May 31, 2019.

If your licence is not renewed by the deadline, you will be required to pay the $150 reinstatement application fee, in addition to the annual licensing fee.

CMRAO staff are available to assist and answer questions regarding the licence renewal process. Information about licence renewals is also available on the CMRAO website.
