LTB is currently holding public consultations on documents related to non-profit housing co-operatives. The public is invited to review and provide written comments on the proposed documents by April 28, 2014.
In September 2013, Bill 14, the Non-profit Housing Co-operatives Statute Law Amendment Act, 2013 passed third reading and received Royal Assent. This Bill amends parts of the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006; however, these amendments are not yet in effect, as it still has to be proclaimed into law.
Bill 14 sets out a few key amendments, including that non-profit housing co-operatives eviction tenure disputes will come under the RTA. (Part V.1)
In anticipation of Bill 14 being proclaimed, the Board has developed rules for co-ops and a practice direction. Rules and practice directions provide a consistent framework of common procedures and guidance about what the tribunal expects of the parties and in turn what the parties can expect of the tribunal. The proposed rules and practice direction related to co-ops are attached below for public review and feedback.
