On May 20, 2021, the Ontario government amended the General Regulation under the Condominium Management Services Act, 2015 (CMSA) to extend the time for Transitional General Licensees to complete the education and exam requirements to apply for a General Licence. The amendment states that a Transitional General Licensee may not apply for a renewal of the licence or reapply for the licence after May 31, 2022.
This change will allow current Transitional General Licensees to renew their licence for one more year as part of the 2021–22 licence renewal cycle. Additionally, this extension should enable Transitional General Licensees to complete the education and exam requirements, in order to apply for a General Licence before the 2022–23 licence renewal period.
This change was made in recognition of the exceptional challenges that condominium managers and management provider businesses have been facing as the result of COVID-19, and the difficulties individuals have had completing their education program.
Beginning June 1, 2021, Transitional General Licensees should follow the normal process for renewing their licence by logging into their account on the CMRAO website.
