by Aimin Li, Ph.D.
Diversity in a condo community can be an asset, not a liability, when an open mind is used to deal with problems.

 

DCC #156 in Bowmanville (Summer 2002)

"When DCC #156 decided that installing an awning over their front entrance way was the perfect solution to slippery and icy conditions, they didn't realize how much effort would be involved to implement the change. Follow the process they went through to ensure that section 97(3) of the new Act was followed - which allows for a Corporation to make an addition, alteration or improvement to common elements".

 

 

The Matrix at 361 and 373 Front Street West (Spring 2002)

MTCC #873

"Floor Captains are Unique Volunteers - In this building a network of volunteers known as floor captains serve a variety of purposes from acting as a welcoming committee to new residents to providing feedback to the board of directors on various issues."

 

 

Lynwood Lane in the Park (Fall 2001)
PCC #115

"Visit a corporation where community spirit is considered to be the pillar of their strength. Various committees working together ensure a spirit of friendship and fellowship in this building. As a result of the board working diligently with management over the years, a recent reserve fund study revealed that Lynwood Lane had a fully funded reserve fund. Truly unique!"
