Condo Owners Association (COA)
Condo Owners Association (COA) is a non profit Association to represents Condo Owners of residential and commercial condominiums. COA was founded in March 2010 by Linda Pinizzotto with the vision to provide a voice for Condo Owners and promote better governance, accountability, operations and regulation in the operations of all condominiums.
COA advocates changes to Condo Act
The Condo Owners Association (COA) advocates Government to support consumer protection in all forms of condominiums. Condominiums are governed by the Provincial Condominium Act through the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services.
Many condo owners are experiencing issues in their condos, one being high maintenance fees and low values. The other being a lack of fiduciary responsibility of the Board of Directors and difficulties with Property Management. There is also cases of irresponsible Condo Owners. The COA participated in the Condo Act review advocating important changes to provide better protection to Condo Owners. Click on: Building a Better Condo Act (scroll to the bottom). We are thrilled to report our voice has been heard. Recently, Bill 106 "Protecting Condominium Owners Act 2015" has been passed Click on: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&BillID=3399
COA represents Condo Owners on the Consumers Council of Canada, the Fire Marshal Office, Homeowner Protections Centre and various others Stakeholder groups. We believe information and education is an integral part of condominium ownership as well it promotes a better understanding and successful operation of condo corporations.
