Tarion says it will hold its 2016 Annual Public Meeting on May 31 as a webcast.
The meeting will start at 7:00 p.m. Tarion executives and Ombudsperson will present reports. After the formal presentations, a live question and answer period will be conducted. Stakeholders from across the province are encouraged to send in their questions in advance by clicking here.
“Holding a virtual public meeting makes sense. After listening to feedback from the public, reviewing the cost benefits and recognizing that we can reach so many more consumers, we made the decision to web cast this year’s meeting,” says “In the past, most participants were from the Greater Toronto Area, and only a few new home owners came from outside the city – some having to travel for many hours,” said Tarion president and CEO Howard Bogach. “Since we provide consumer protection to new home buyers across the entire province, it’s important that our Annual Public Meeting be similarly accessible.”
This new format is consistent with improvements Tarion has made to the warranty process over the years. Moving to online channels has significantly increased home buyers’ satisfaction with the warranty process as they find it more convenient and accessible.
