The Canadian Condominium Institute is an indpendent, non-profit organization formed in 1982 with Chapters throughout Canada, including the North Alberta Chapter. This organization is the only national association dealing exclusively with condominium issues affecting all of the participants in the condominium community. The Chapters throughout the country provide practical comparisons to the different provincial Acts. The CCI assists its members in establishing and operating successful Condominium Corporations through information dissemination, education, workshops, courses, and seminars.

Helpful hint: If you do not agree with the direction of the board or how the board makes decisions, then your alternative is to find people who want to sit on the board and share your philosophy. Condominium living can be difficult if the board is not communicating effectively with the owners, or if there is a lack of interest on the part of the owners to participate in the future of the condominium corporation. Condominium living requires owners to work with each other for the betterment of the corporation.

1) How many properties did your company clear last year? Tip: If the answer is 40 or less, the company is almost certainly a one-man show. 2) How much and what type of insurance do you have? Tip: Two-million dollars is not enough for snow removal; the answer should be $5 million or more, and the contractor must have a specific „snow services” rider in his or her policy. 3) Are all of your employees covered by WCB? Tip: Request a current issue of the company’s WCB clearance certificate. 4) How many trucks are in your fleet, and of those, how many are backup vehicles? Tip: A ratio of one backup truck per every three or four regular service trucks is excellent. 5) Do you subcontract any of the work performed? Tip: Some (typically smaller) contractors take on more work than they know they can handle and will then sell off any extra jobs to the highest bidder prior to the beginning

of the snow season. 6) Do you have a 24/7 dedicated customer service person? Tip: The contractor’s answer may be: „Yeah, you can call me any time you want, I am up all night anyway!” Remember, they will be operating the plow and won’t in fact be able to speak with you. 7) Do you provide detailed diagrams and descriptions of the areas of my property you will be servicing? Tip: Avoid disputes during the service season; have all areas to be serviced laid out in writing and keep a copy. 8) Is your pricing all-inclusive and flat rate for the season? Tip: Don’t sign a contract that ultimately will leave open the possibility of extra charges, no matter how initially cheap it seems. 9) Does your company start plowing snow at an accumulation of one or two inches? Tip: A snow service should clear snowfalls at an accumulation of one inch. Otherwise, a property is susceptible to the dangers of black ice and slips and falls.

MEDIA RELEASE For Immediate Release

May 7, 2014

Condominium Property Act Fails to Deliver

Edmonton - The Canadian Condominium Institute, North Alberta Chapter is voicing its concerns with Bill 13 The Condominium Property Amendment Act, introduced by the Government of Alberta on May 6, 2014.

30

Despite nearly five years of consultation, the legislation falls short of protecting condominium owners. CCI North Alberta says the province has ignored their call for consumer protection measures and Builder/Developer accountability. “The number one concern we’ve heard from owners over the past decade is water infiltration and building construction issues. These issues are not addressed in this legislation.” “We are concerned developers will not be held accountable, and condo owners will be left holding the bag,” said Anand Sharma, President of the Canadian Condominium Institute North Chapter. CCI has advocated for significant holdbacks against developers with deficient building practices and an independent inspection process that forces developers to build ethically and responsibly. “The province is leaving good building practices entirely in the hands of warranty providers. But warranty providers are for-profit entities backed by private insurance. Their primary goal is profit, not the public interest. Without strong language and enforcement in the Condominium Property Act, the province is letting the crisis in building deficiencies in Alberta condominiums continue,” added Sharma. Sharma said some changes to the Act proposed by consumer protection groups were ignored. At the same time, the Government included new items - such as the inclusion of an inspector to audit developer documents and accounts that were never raised in consultations. The Act also removes financial reporting requirements. It does not require annual financial statements to be prepared by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAPP). This is a clear deviation away from consumer protection, said Sharma. The Canadian Condominium Institute is also concerned that many changes have been put in the regulations, where there is little public input or oversight. “Much of the detail with the Condominium Property Amendment Act lies in the regulations, and those haven’t been shown to the public.” “Key policy issues that needed significant changes such as insurance, property manager accreditation and training, and document disclosure to owners are not detailed in legislation. These critical issues will be legislated behind closed doors and outside the Legislature where elected officials and the public have input,” said Sharma CCI North Alberta expressed support for the Act’s provisions for a tribunal that will address some issues facing condominium owners.

MEDIA RELEASE Condominium Property Act Fails to Deliver “We have been asking for a disputes resolutions model that would allow owners to seek resolutions outside of the court system, and we are pleased that the Alberta Government has responded with the establishment of a tribunal,� stated Sharma. CCI North Alberta will be proposing a number of amendments over the coming months, and is looking forward to improving the legislation significantly and providing input for the regulations prior to the fall legislative session. The Canadian Condominium Institute-North Alberta is a non-profit organization with a mandate to educate Condominium directors, owners and professionals in North Alberta.

a maintenance schedule for condos

Regular Maintenance is the Key Inspecting your condo and common property on a regular basis, and following good maintenance practices, is the best way to protect your investment. Whether you take care of a few tasks at a time or several all at once, it is important to get into the habit of doing them. Establish a routine for yourself and your Board of Directors or building manager and you will find the work is easy to accomplish and not very time consuming.

Insurance rates and deductibles are increasing and coverage is decreasing. It is imperative for you to review your current coverage to ensure your insurance carrier is able to meet your needs and can adapt quickly when legislation is changed under the Alberta Condominium Property Act & Regulations. Claims Service is also an area worth consideration.
