COVID-19 Bulletin No. 13: Tarion's Response To COVID-19

Updated on March 25, 2020

We hope you are all fairing well.  This information should be discussed with your professional engineers. If you are concerned about Tarion Deadlines, this provides some breathing room.

Regarding Tarion Deadlines for Condominiums, this Notification was posted yesterday: https://www.tarion.com/news/64045/tarions-response-covid-19

With respect to Warranty claim submissions and requests for conciliation:

Until the emergency orders have been lifted, all warranty claim submission deadlines (First-Year, Second-Year and MSD Common Elements Claims) are suspended. Condo Corporations should still submit forms to their builder and to Tarion but are not required to adhere to deadlines for submitting forms and will not have forms rejected for being late. Once the emergency orders have been lifted, Condo Corporations will receive a reasonable extension to submit their forms.

The 60-day period in which condo corporations must request a conciliation is suspended until the emergency orders have been lifted. Once the emergency period is over, condo corporations will receive a reasonable extension to submit a request for conciliation.

Conciliations and inspections are postponed and will be rescheduled at the earliest possible date after the emergency orders have been lifted.

Builder Repair Periods

All repair timelines are suspended until after the emergency orders are lifted.

We are monitoring the current situation and will review this timeline and advise of any extensions to the suspension.

This does not apply to emergencies or health and safety issues. (SEE BELOW)

Conciliations, inspections & common element meetings

• Conciliations, inspections, common element meetings and other possible in-person interactions booked over the next month are postponed and will be rescheduled to the earliest available date after the emergency orders are lifted. This will be continually re-evaluated and further advisories will be forthcoming.

Emergencies and Health and Safety Issues

• Unit owners or condo corporations can still contact their builder and Tarion regarding any concerns with health and safety issues or other emergency concerns. Builders are advised to continue to follow the emergency processes outlined in Builder Bulletin 42 and Builder Bulletin 49.
