The CRT is an online tribunal, which will adjudicate less complicated strata related disputes and other civil claims of up to $25,000.  Some of the strata related issues the CRT can resolve include:

  • bylaw infractions and enforcement;
  • non-payment of strata fees or fines;
  • meeting conduct irregularities;
  • unfair actions by the strata corporation;
  • issues relating to the common property;
  • interpretation of the legislation, regulations or bylaws.

The CRT promises to be an affordable and convenient forum to resolve common strata corporation issues.

The CRT will start accepting strata claims for early intake on July 13, 2016.  As the CRT is not completely implemented yet, please visit their website for more information:
