Effective date of the New Home Warranty Act has been deferred

November 7, 2016

The effective date of The New Home Warranty Act is being deferred until January 1, 2018.

The Provincial Consumer Protection Division is currently in the process of letting stakeholders know it is being deferred.

On Wednesday last week, staff from Consumer Protection Office gave a presentation at the Manitoba Home Builders Association Forum and Trade Show.  At that time, the builders were advised of the decision to defer the effective date.  The MHBA and warranty providers have indicated they are supportive of the additional time to prepare for implementation.
