The Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI), a national, independent non-profit organization that deals exclusively with condominium issues, is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.
Established in 1982 with five chapters, CCI’s objectives include to create and curate content, educate, advocate and facilitate community. CCI assists its members using education, information dissemination, publications, workshops, conferences and technical assistance. It also encourages and provides objective research for practitioners and government agencies regarding all aspects of condominium operations, lobbies provincial and federal governments for improvements to legislation, and advocates for higher standards in all services to the condominium client.
CCI will be celebrating its 35th anniversary all year. Some of the features of the anniversary and associated events it has planned include the Great Canadian Condo contest, an online contest that will be launching soon; two Leaders Forums for CCI chapter leaders in Fredericton and Thunder Bay; a new logo celebrating its 35th anniversary; a social media campaign featuring the 150 greatest condo moments, which will be launched on June 1; and an Anniversary Awards Dinner, which will be held in Thunder Bay in October 2017.
The latest CCI chapter, Grand River, will be the Institute’s 17th chapter. The region that is currently serviced by the Golden Horseshoe chapter has seen rapidly growing membership. As a result, effective July 1, 2017, that region will be serviced by two chapters: the new Grand River chapter, which has 435 members, and the existing Golden Horseshoe chapter.
