I’m on a strata committee for a building that is updating its by-laws. We are writing our own, as a first draft only, I need to add, and we have lined up a lawyer to review them and provide suggestions and any necessary changes. We have started from the latest version of the Model by-laws, with some obvious amendments (eg, excluding fish from the “pets” by-law).
But I’ve been trying to track down other building’s by-laws to see how they have worded new by-laws for managing visitors carparking or swimming pool use, for example. Several people have told me that their building has a great by-law that handles this (or their brother’s building does…) so I’ve asked them to give us a copy.
But then they say, “well, I’ll ask the strata manager if they will allow this?” and that is the end of it. So my question is, are a building’s by-laws a public document that can be provided to any member of the public, or are they in some way a private or confidential document that can only be provided to owners and their tenants?
Is there an authoritative reference anywhere that I can refer people to, in order to overcome their reluctance to distribute a building’s by-laws to other people who want to read them?
