Ontario Appoints Special Advisor to Review Protections for Owners of New Homes

Taking Action to Strengthen Consumer Protection for Buyers of New Homes

Queens Park - Ontario has appointed the Honourable J. Douglas Cunningham, QC as special advisor to review protections for owners of new homes and identify opportunities to improve consumer protection measures.

Justice Cunningham, former Associate Chief Justice of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, will conduct a public, independent review of the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act and the Tarion Warranty Corporation. His final report will provide recommendations on how to improve consumer protection, accountability, transparency and board governance.

Tarion has made recent improvements, such as enhancements to warranty coverage and improved enforcement against illegal building. This review will help build on these improvements in order to further protect owners of new homes across the province.

Improving consumer protection for all Ontarians is part of the government's plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
