Registrar Bulletins & Notices
Tarion’s operational policy statements are called Registrar Bulletins. While in many cases the bulletin content is prescriptive (setting out rules), some bulletins are more informational. Tarion’s Registrar Bulletins are enforced through the vendor builder agreements that applicants sign upon qualification for enrolment or enrolment.
With the launch of the Home Construction Regulatory Authority (HCRA), Tarion has revised its former Builder Bulletin framework. Some have been discontinued as being outdated or redundant, others have been realigned to provide clearer information and there are some new bulletins. The Registrar Bulletins will replace the former Builder Bulletins in respect of any homes proposed to be sold or built post February 1, 2021.
Any former Builder Bulletins which deal with items related to the HCRA’s statutory mandate have been discontinued since the responsibility going forward will be addressed by the HCRA.
