A Discussion on the Civil Resolution Tribunal
On November 15th, Stratawest was pleased to welcome a large number of our interested council members to a client seminar entitled, “A Discussion on the Civil Resolution Tribunal”. Joining us to provide an overview of the Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) were Shannon Salter, Chair of the CRT, and Tony Gioventu, Executive Director of the Condominium Home Owners Association (CHOA). We are extremely thankful to both Shannon and Tony for taking time from their very busy schedules to speak with us and also for agreeing to provide the following information to our clients and all of those that follow our blog.
The discussion was informative and well received, and included background on the formation and purpose of the CRT, the use of the CRT technology (the Solution Explorer), the types of claims currently being experienced and that may be expected, the handling of disputes and collections by strata councils through the CRT, and helpful tips on avoiding it all together. Due to the popularity of the seminar topic and the interest of those that could not attend, we decided to have it recorded and are pleased to provide the videos of the respective presentations below, along with the slide decks of the presentations themselves.
It was noted at the seminar that Cory Pettersen sits on the Board of the Strata Property Agents of BC (SPABC) and they are working with Hammerberg Lawyers LLP to produce an educational brochure for strata councils which will be provided to Stratawest clients upon completion. We are pleased that both CHOA and the CRT have since agreed to review this document prior to distribution in order to make it as accurate and informative to strata councils as possible, and it will be circulated to clients of SPABC member brokerages in due course.
Stratawest would like to once again extend our thanks to all those that participated in this seminar and invite any feedback that you may have on it or this post.
