The rules of Islington 2000 were updated in the spring of 2016. 
Comprehensive Rules & Regulations UPDATED

 Authorization & Approval of the updated rules


The following rules are intended to provide the basis for making our home, including our recreational facilities, a pleasant, safe and congenial environment, in which we can all take pride. These rules were drafted to provide residents with maximum enjoyment of all the facilities, common elements and suites and to prevent inconveniences caused by others.


These rules shall be observed by all residents, their guests and the corporation's representatives. You must familiarize yourself with each of the rules and ensure that you, and all residents and guests for whom you are responsible, abide by them.

These rules were passed by the Board of Directors of each of the corporations pursuant to section 58 of the Act in accordance with the criteria set out in Repeal & Enactment : Effective and Schedule "B".



Observance of these rules and thoughtful consideration of others will benefit all.




The authority for the Board of the corporation to pass the rules is set out in section 58 (1) of the Act:

The Board may make, amend or repeal rules respecting the use of common elements and units to,
i) promote the safety, security and welfare of the owners and of the property and assets of the corporation; or
ii) prevent unreasonable interference with the use and enjoyment of the common elements, the units or the assets of the corporation.



These rules apply to all present and future residents and their visitors, guests and invites, all employees, staff and representatives of the corporation, all of whom shall be subject to and shall comply with the provisions of the Act, the declaration, the by-laws and the rules of the corporation.


If you observe a resident of the corporation breaching any of the rules, please politely ask the person to comply with any such provision (if you are comfortable doing so) or bring the breach to the attention of the manager or a security officer. If the particular breach is serious or continues, please provide a written memorandum addressed to the Board and delivered to the manager of the corporation, detailing the specific events of the breach, the name and corresponding unit number of the person involved, the time and date of the breach and your name and unit number.
Management will notify the offending unit owner in writing, requesting compliance with the corporation's rules. Any subsequent non-compliance by the resident may result in the resident being suspended from the recreational facilities or other common elements or denied access to the corporation's services for a period not more than 30 days. If the resident still refuses to comply, the matter may be referred to the corporation's solicitor for further legal action, subject to the determination of the Board as to what, if any, other action will be taken to enforce compliance.



If on any one or more occasions the corporation fails to enforce compliance with any of the rules, the corporation's failure to do so shall not constitute a waiver of the Board's right to take any action to uphold such provision on a subsequent occasion and the corporation shall be entitled to enforce compliance thereafter in the event of failure by any resident to comply with any such rule after notice to such resident requiring compliance, free of any claim of waiver, acquiescence, laches, issue estoppel or discrimination with respect to such compliance enforcement. The Board reserves the discretion to determine in a particular case whether to distinguish different circumstances, whether to enforce compliance and the appropriate choice of methods of compliance.



In addition to all other means of enforcement available to the corporation, section 134 (1) of the Act provides that the corporation may make an application to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice for an order enforcing compliance with any provision of  the Act, the declaration, the by-laws and rules, subject to section 132 (a) of the Act and any applicable mediation or arbitration proceedings. A resident in breach of any of these rules will be held accountable to indemnify the corporation in accordance with Enforcement : Enforcement and to pay costs in accordance with Enforcement : Suspension Rights, subject to registration of a lien and collection of all damages and costs. By forewarning residents of these remedies, it is hoped that a congenial lifestyle can be assured in our home environment and that residents can avoid incurring substantial enforcement expenses.
