Recovery of unpaid civil penalty | Section 248

Any civil penalty imposed by the Tribunal as a result of a contravention of an order under this Act that is to be paid by an owner of a lot to the owners corporation may be recovered under this Act as if it were an amount of unpaid contributions.

A monetary penalty of up to $11,000 for an individual and $22,000 for a corporation may be imposed for the contravention and may be recovered as a debt due to the Crown in a court of competent jurisdiction (see section 77 of that Act). Other penalties ordered to be paid by the Tribunal may also be recovered as debts under that Act (see section 78 of that Act).


Section 86 of this Act provides for the recovery of unpaid contributions.
