A Condominium’s bylaws govern how the Condominium Corporation is run. Usually addressing administrative topics such as the election and practices of the Board of Directors, the collection of monthly maintenance fees, and how rules are passed. Provincial legislation sets out what matters can be covered by bylaws. And all bylaws must be consistent with both of legislation and the Condominium Corporation’s declaration.
Rules focus on the day-to-day aspects of Condominium living and vary from complex to complex (i.e. pets, noise, parking, and use of common elements). They’re in place to help ensure that the complex is a safe, pleasant and attractive place to live. Rules also spell out the rights and obligations of individual owners.
