If you live in a strata

Higher building review

If you live in a strata, the rules are slightly different when it comes to property use concerns. Stratas are governed first by the provincial Strata Property Act. Each strata can then make their own rules within that framework. These stricter strata bylaws overrule City bylaws.

So what does this mean for you?

This means that, for many property use concerns, you need to contact your strata council or strata manager, and learn how they enforce your strata bylaws.

Relevant provincial regulations

The BC Financial Institutions Commission website has information about the Strata Property Act and Regulations. There you can view the Act and Regulations, amendments, and forms.

You will also find numerous guides with information about various topics and guides related to the Act. If you are a strata developer, owner, or council, find out your rights and obligations under the Act.
