How to Participate in the Tarion Review Process

As mentioned in my previous blog post, Ontario recently initiated a review of Tarion Warranty Corporation. I was honoured to be invited to participate as a member of a “focus group” to provide feedback about Tarion to the Honourable Justice Cunningham, who is undertaking the review.

Details about the province’s review of Tarion can be found at the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services website here.

Note, in particular, that public consultations have now been scheduled, for anyone who may be interested in participating in the review process. For instance, meetings have been scheduled to take place in Ottawa and Kingston, as follows:
