New Video Series Underscores Importance of Ethics for Condominium Managers

The CMRAO aims to build trust in condominium management services by ensuring that managers and provider businesses comply with a code of ethics. The CMRAO’s Code of Ethics sets out, in regulation, the general obligations of condominium managers and provider businesses, and promotes professionalism, reliability, and quality of service.


To help licensees further understand these obligations, the CMRAO has developed a series of informational videos, which focus on workplace scenarios that require an understanding of the condominium manager’s legal obligations and ethical decision-making.
