Administrative Agreement

Tarion is an administrative authority overseen by the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services. To improve existing oversight, accountability and transparency, Tarion and the Minister have entered into a new Administrative Agreement. This replaces Tarion's former accountability agreement and sets out new legally-binding rules for Tarion, including: 

  • Requirements for reporting, including publishing an annual report and business plan;
  • Commitments regarding governance and the New Home Ombuds;
  • Competency requirements for board members and a code of conduct for directors;
  • Rules around privacy and access to information;
  • Requirements for policy development, consultation, and regulatory changes; and
  • Operational commitments, performance indicators, and targets to measure Tarion’s performance and to ensure its mandated responsibilities are met.
