Condominium corporations are required to protect owners’ personal information under the Personal Information Protection Act. However, corporations are allowed to collect and use personal information from owners as required under the Condominium Property Act. For example, condo corporations can:
- Maintain a list of owners’ contact information.
- Record the names of owners in meeting minutes for business purposes.
- Require owners to provide the names of anyone renting their unit.
Condo owners can request to see all of the personal information a condo corporation has collected about them. However, the corporation cannot disclose other owners’ information in releasing this information. For example, an owner could request a copy of a complaint made about him or her, but the corporation would have to remove or black out all information that could identify the complaining party.
