The City of Regina Condominium Policy Bylaw

The Condominium Policy Bylaw No. 2012-14 was established to ensure the orderly conversion of residential rental units to condominium ownership, to provide measures to mitigate hardship for tenants of rental properties that are the subject of conversion applications, and to ensure that conversions do not significantly impact the supply of rental accommodations in the city.

Overview:

  • General application procedure for condominium conversions is outlined in the bylaw.
  • Every owner of a property who wishes to convert property into a condominium or redivide property into one or more condominium units shall pay the applicable application fees.
  • Condominium approval authority is delegated to the Development Officer for approval of the conversion of certain existing residential developments to condominium developments with up to 50 units, for new construction, bare land and non-residential condominium developments.
  • Where a property contains 51 units or more, the Development Officer shall evaluate the application and related material for condominium conversion and prepare a report for the Regina Planning Commission.
  • The Regina Planning Commission shall review the report of the Development Officer and shall make a recommendation to City Council.
  • City Council may deny any application where the conditions are not or cannot be complied with as of the application date.
  • Certain criteria and requirements are established for the conversion of existing residential rental properties to condominium ownership.
  • The City shall provide public notice of condominium conversion applications, in accordance with applicable legislation and bylaws.
