Sections and types in stratas

Last updated on January 4, 2021

Strata corporations can have sections. Strata corporations and sections can also have types. Sections and types have different legal meanings and different responsibilities.

  • Sections are like “mini strata corporations” within the overall strata corporation. In addition to being part of the strata corporation, sections will have a section executive and a section budget. In addition to the strata corporation's bylaws and rules, sections can also have their own bylaws and rules for matters that pertain solely to the section. Learn more about sections.
  • Types have a much more limited scope than sections. Types are simply a method to allocate operating fund common expenses if the contributions are related to only one type of strata lot. Both strata corporations and sections can have types. Learn more about types.
