Living in a strata

Who governs stratas

Stratas are governed first by the provincial Strata Property Act.

Each strata can then make their own rules within that framework. These stricter strata by-laws overrule City by-laws.

If you live in a strata, the rules are slightly different when it comes to property use concerns.

For many property use concerns, you need to:

  • Contact your strata council or strata manager
  • Learn how strata council or strata managers enforce your strata by-laws

Relevant provincial regulations

The Province's strata housing website has information about operating and living in stratas and links to the Strata Property Act and regulations.
