All Condominiums are Legally Required to File Condo Returns
Under the Condominium Act, 1998 (the Act) and Ontario Regulation 377/17, all condominium corporations are legally required to file condominium returns with the Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO).
Any condominium corporations that have not yet filed their returns with the CAO and paid their annual assessments, must act immediately to avoid legal consequences for not complying with the Act, including late penalties.
Please contact the CAO at: 416-901-9356 or toll-free: 1- (800) 854-9014
