Deborah Howden Head ShotDewan v. Burdet, 2018 ONCA 195

Facts: A group of unit owners (the “Minority Owners”) claimed oppression by Claude-Alain Burdet (“Burdet”), the owner of a majority of the units in the corporation. The Minority Owners claimed that Burdet used his votes over the years and in his capacity as President, Treasurer
and Director of Carleton Condominium Corporation No. 396 (CCC 396), to benefit himself and his family at the expense of the Minority Owners and the corporation as a whole.

The trial judge found that Burdet oppressed the Minority Owners, was personally liable for the oppression, and terminated CCC 396 as a Condominium corporation. Burdet appealed those findings.

Warren Kleiner Head ShotCondominium directors on the board could benefit from additional training in governance issues beyond what mandatory education courses provide, Toronto condominium lawyer Warren Kleiner tells AdvocateDaily.com.

The Condominium Act 1998 requires that all directors appointed, elected, or re-elected on or after Nov. 1, 2017 complete a training program provided by the Condominium Authority of Ontario (CAO) within six months to assist them in understanding their obligations and best practices for good governance, according to the CAO website.

“That gives directors a better understanding of how condos work, but there are often other issues we are asked to comment on when the board is having problems,” says Kleiner, a partner with Shibley Righton LLP in Toronto.

The Condominium Director Training Program, provided by the CAO, consists of 21 short modules, one of which specifically addresses “The Role of Directors and Their Key Responsibilities.” It covers the statutory obligations and corporate governance principles that guide directors, but Kleiner has some extra tips for prospective and current board members.

This is an excerpt from an article that appeared on AdvocateDaily.com.
