Review of Tarion's Construction Performance Guidelines

Tarion has committed to an ongoing review of the Construction Performance Guidelines (CPG) for new homes and condominium units to keep pace with the ever-changing construction industry.  This review will be done in phases, and all feedback shared will be carefully reviewed and researched to ensure that the CPG is a “living” document that can be modified to reflect current practices and requirements. Your feedback is vital to the success of this review.

We want to hear from you on how to update and improve the CPG.

Proposed Revisions To Tarion’s Freehold Construction Performance Guidelines - Phase 2 (Spring 2019)

Tarion’s continuous review of the Construction Performance Guidelines (CPG) for freehold homes and condominium units has now prepared a Phase 2 of the review. 

Tarion has been receiving submission from a wide range of stakeholders on potential changes to the CPG, since the start of the review. Those suggestions have been reviewed and prioritized based on considerations such as:

  • Changes that have been made to the Ontario Building Code;
  • Common concerns raised on warranty forms and during the claims process; and,
  • Currently industry practices.

From now until July 22, 2019, Tarion is actively seeking your feedback on the Phase 2 (Spring 2019) proposed revisions -- click here for more details and downloadable PDFs of each proposed revision.
