Data on transitional general licences released

Friday, July 29, 2022

The CMRAO recently published data on the status of transitional general licences as this year’s condo manager licence renewal cycle came to an end.

Of the 805 managers the CMRAO approved for a transitional general licence, 418 obtained a general licence, 69 obtained a limited licence, and 289 allowed their licence to expire at some point between 2018 and 2022. That’s the latest data as of July 15.

There are 18 licensees who have been granted temporary extensions either as an accommodation under the Ontario Human Rights Code, or to give the CMRAO more time to review their general licence application.

Transitional general licensees were not eligible to renew their licences or reapply after May 31, 2022. They were a time-limited class of licence for condominium managers originally introduced in 2017. Under section 16 of Ontario Reg. 123/17 and were established for experienced managers who had not completed education and exam requirements.

As outlined in the Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 (CMSA) if, prior to November 1, 2017, a licensee had more than two years of work experience as a condo manager obtained within the previous five years, but had not completed the educational or examination requirements for a general licence, they could receive a transitional general licence, provided all other licensing requirements were met.
