What are the Construction Performance Guidelines?

The purpose of the Construction Performance Guidelines is to provide advance guidance as to how Tarion will decide disputes between homeowners and builders regarding defects in work or materials. The Construction Performance Guidelines are intended to complement the Ontario Building Code. They are supplemented by any applicable guidelines or standards produced by industry associations. They do not replace manufacturer warranties.
