BC Civil Resolution Tribunal – Amendments


The Vancouver Sun recently published an article regarding the new Civil Resolution Tribunal, which we have previously written about.

Discussed briefly in the article are proposed amendments to the legislation, which would make it mandatory for most Strata Corporation disputes to be settled at the CRT- including those initiated by the Strata Corporation.  This addresses a significant criticism of Strata Council’s, that the Strata Corporation be obliged to participate in the process but not Owners.

These amendments are further discussed at both the CRT Website and in the press release from the BC Government.

Further clarification can be found in the CRT article entitled “9 Things To Know About the Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) Act Changes”.
