Determining who is entitled to vote in a condominium corporation is determined by the Condo Act.
All voting by owners shall be on the basis of one vote per unit.
When one individual or corporation owns many or a majority of suites in a building, the value of having condo elections becomes superfluous. One individual becomes capable of controlling the outcome of condo elections and other voting. A single individual can control who is elected to a condo board and other matters for which a vote is required. The condo corporation can be at risk of being managed according to the interests of one individual, perhaps an absentee investor, to the detriment of a majority who reside in the building.
Some believe that a better approach would be to allow one vote per owner rather than one vote per suite.
This would make it more difficult for one owner to control a condo corporation. It would create a disincentive to investors from purchasing multiple units and forcing decisions that can be detrimental to the corporation.
