TARION REFORM : wake up calls finally heard from Report of retired Justice CUNNINGHAM ? 2017/04/05 12:18  
( CAFCOR's Search function locates years of past postings about TARION , builders' virtual self-regulation, and limits on consumer protection including with the New Home Warranty Act )

Heading towards another election, has the Province of Ontario finally decided to listen to years of WAKE UP calls about consumer protection, particularly as to condo buyers ?

The latest wake up call ?

Dec 14/16 Cunningham Report : “Final report: Review of the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act and the Tarion Warranty Corporation” https://www.ontario.ca/document/final-report-review-ontario-new-home-warranties-plan-act-and-tarion- warranty-corporation
March 28/17 ToStar “Province stripping Tarion of builder-regulator role. Citing ‘conflict of interest’ concerns, the Ontario government will create a standalone home builder regulator separate from the warranty provider”

https://www.thestar.com/news/investigations/2017/03/28/province-stripping-tarion-of-builder- regulator-role.html

* ToStar quotes The MGCS Minister Tracy MacCharles :

“Tarion’s multiple roles and responsibilities can give rise to a perception of conflict of interest, and could result in an actual conflict or conflicts of interest. The new home building sector is an important driver of Ontario’s economy and, quite frankly, I believe it deserves a stand-alone regulator.”

* A new round of legal articles appear :
