​​Last, the NDP Government, through their Open Government Initiative, wants to "increase citizen access to government information and data, as well as facilitate better conversations with, and increase engagement between, citizens, stakeholders and government".  I support that concept, in particular, on how it applies to improving condominium legislation to benefit Alberta condo owners.  END​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Alberta Condo Act Team (ACAT) website.  We are a grassroots, informal group of Alberta condominium owners who have worked for years to make Service Alberta, work-in-progress, soon-to-be-proclaimed, condominium legislation more inclusive, fair, and balanced to those of us who pay the bills, contribute to the pay, perks and pensions of condo managers, lawyers and other condo industry personnel, are the economic engine behind ALL condo industry successes AND who are the single largest stakeholder group of all condo related stakeholder groups in Alberta.  

Our latest meeting with Service Alberta was February 13, 2018 and we posted, in the above DOCUMENTS tab, a debriefing document of that meeting.  The document  identifies many of our concerns about the current Service Alberta revision process.  It identifies the condo industry insiders who have played a key role with Service Alberta in the evolution of our current legislation AND it lists a summary of our twenty-seven (27) "Improvement Ideas" that addresses only some of the more concerning shortcomings and loopholes in that work.

Over the years, we have had many meetings with Service Alberta representatives.  Early in our work we launched a change.org petition to Premier Rachel Notley to include us in the Regulation development process.   We've held condo owner meetings that we paid for with generous donations from our supporters.  We've written multiple documents to Service Alberta outlining our many condo concerns.  We've even launched a change.org petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to work with us to establish a "Canadian Condominium Owner Bill of Rights".  We did that because, based on how we have been treated in Alberta, and from what we are hearing from condo owners in other Provinces, we aren't being authentically heard by Government and we appear to share similar condo concerns.   

It appears that many Provincial governments just aren't stepping up to truly protect potential condominium purchasers and existing owners.  Perhaps they are concerned about offending the powerful groups of condominium industry insiders and that prevents them from establishing specific, observable, measurable legislation to reduce the imbalance of power that exists between condo industry insiders (and that includes condo boards) against condominium owners AND make condominium legislation more inclusive, fair, and balanced.  

We understand if Provincial Governments are hesitant to offend the condo industry by implementing ideas that could lessen industry power, privacy and profitability ... but that doesn't make it right.  

Here's the link to the Canadian Condominium Owner Bill of Rights petition to Prime Minister Trudeau.  Sign it now, please, to show your support!


We see condominium legislation as a non-partisan issue.  Why wouldn't EVERY elected representative, no matter the party, and no matter where in Canada, not want equitable condo legislation for all Canadians who have invested in this expansive, and expanding, government and industry driven housing option? 

It appears Governments, and condo industry insiders, are on a run away trying to legislate control over condo owners.  For example, in Alberta we could end up being governed by FOUR (4) sets of laws:  The Condominium Property Amendment Act, 2014; the Regulations that support the Act; the condo bylaws (that could number as high as 99 {or more}) and ... and here comes the really scary part ... the "Rules" and "Fines" which we understand at the present time can be arbitrarily generated (with no owner involvement or agreement) by an unlicensed, unregulated, untrained in condo board governance, sometimes ill informed, self-serving, unethical group of VOLUNTEERS who manage our multi-million dollar investments!  

Even writing that out scares me! 

(To all of the "good" board members reading this, please don't be offended by the above statement.  If all condo boards operated as you are, this website, and our work, wouldn't be necessary.)

In Alberta, we are going to do all possible to prevent our condo complexes from facing condominium board abandonment; potential corporation bankruptcy, or our condo complexes becoming the new slums of Canada due to weak legislation, lack of elected representative accountability and condo corporation mismanagement on many levels.

​For example, here's just one situation that causes us deeeeeep concern.  We have learned that some condo boards, managers, lawyers, and other condo industry insiders are taking it upon themselves to "redact" (fancy word for remove, delete, "doctor", sanitize, non-disclose) certain condominium corporation events, issues, actions and/or decisions from our condo minutes and other documents citing potential violation of the Privacy Act and/or "because the situation is legal".  

​We view this as a totally unacceptable practice and our recent newsletter explains in DETAIL the many concerns we have about this very concerning issue.  If you would like a copy of the newsletter please contact us at info@albertacondominiums.ca.

​2.   Review the latest edition (February, 2018) debriefing document that includes our latest list of Improvement Ideas addressing condominium legislation shortcomings and loopholes.  It is located in the DOCUMENTS tab, top right.  

3.  If you haven’t yet contributed to our Go Fund Me page and you are finding any value from the work we do, please make a donation.  Your money, and our work, is needed at this critical time to keep the pressure on Governments to do the right and honourable thing by  millions of Canadian condo owners, their families and their finances.  

Once our  mission is accomplished any remaining money will be split 50/50 between the Veteran's Food Bank and the SPCA.  NO team member volunteer is paid a wage.  Here's a YOUTUBE link to my video appeal:

BOTTOM LINE:   I, and my valued core team of volunteers, will do the work if you help pay the bills!  

PLEASE NOTE:   For those outside of Alberta who choose to make a donation, we will keep your donation separate from the Alberta donations if you let us know you are from out of Province.

4.  Next, please sign our petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.  You don't have to own a condo to sign the petition:  you only have to want ethical, fair and balanced legislation.  Don't think your letter won't matter because it will.  There are a lot of votes in Canadian condoland.  The more letters to Government the better as it helps increase ​our position with Government:  the ONLY entity that can make meaningful improvements in condo legislation.


5.  Questions?  Send to: info@albertacondominiums.ca and if you are new to this site, please sign up below for our newsletters and read my disclaimer.   THANK YOU SO MUCH for your interest in our work.  To be continued ....
