Voting for directors


Subject to this section, on a vote to elect or to remove a member of the board all

owners entitled to vote may vote for each member of the board. 1998, c. 19, s. 51 (4).



In subsections (6), (7) and (8),

“owner-occupied unit” means a unit of an owner who is entitled to vote in respect of the unit at

a meeting to elect or to remove a director where the unit is used for residential purposes

and the owner has not leased the unit within the 60 days before notice is given for the

meeting, as shown by the record that the corporation is required to maintain under

subsection 83 (3). 1998, c. 19, s. 51 (5).

Reserved position


If at least 15 per cent of the units of the corporation are owner-occupied units on or

after the time at which the board is required to call a turn-over meeting under section 43, no

persons other than the owners of owner-occupied units may elect a person to or remove a person

from one of the positions on the board. 1998, c. 19, s. 51 (6).

Other positions


Nothing in subsection (6) affects the right of the owner of an owner-occupied unit to

vote to elect or to remove any members of the board other than the member who occupies the

position mentioned in that subsection. 1998, c. 19, s. 51 (7).



A director elected under subsection (6) may be removed before the expiration of the

director’s term of office by a vote of the owners at a meeting duly called for the purpose where

the owners of more than 50 per cent of all of the owner-occupied units in the corporation vote in

favour of removal. 1998, c. 19, s. 51 (8).

Method of voting

On a show of hands or on a recorded vote, votes may be cast either personally or

by proxy. 1998, c. 19, s. 52 (1).

Request for recorded vote


At a meeting of owners, a person entitled to vote at the meeting may request that a

recorded vote be held on any item scheduled for a vote either before or promptly after the vote.

1998, c. 19, s. 52 (2).



A proxy need not be an owner. 1998, c. 19, s. 52 (3).

appointing a proxy shall be in writing under the hand of the appointer or the appointer’s attorney
