Since 2009, Tarion has held an Annual Public Meeting (APM) to provide interested stakeholders with an update on the organization, and an opportunity to direct questions to Tarion’s management and employees. On May 31, 2016, Tarion held its first virtual APM by webcast, in an effort to increase accessibility to a greater number of people across Ontario. More than 1,600 people from all parts of the province registered for the event: from Thunder Bay, Timmins and Sudbury to Sarnia, Windsor and Niagara Falls to Kingston, Ottawa and Petawawa; and dozens of towns and cities in between. We also received hundreds of questions from homeowners about the warranty generally and our processes. Tarion staff have followed up with over 200 homeowners to answer individual questions about their homes. More than another 30 general questions were answered live during the webcast.
During the APM, we made a commitment to have a recording of the full meeting, including the Question and Answer session posted by June 7, 2016. We are pleased to exceed that commitment by making it available here.
Over the years, many frequent homeowner questions have been answered on our website. Click here to read our “You Asked Us” section. We will update this page soon with more questions and answers that were not addressed during the 2016 meeting due to time constraints.
Thank you to all those that participated in our 2016 APM.
