Status of File as of May 6, 2020

Pending determination of the future of each Project, the Receiver will no longer be accepting deposits from purchasers. Further information will be made available on the status of the receiverships on this website as it becomes available.

Status of File as of April 21, 2020

Based on the materials filed by the receivership Applicants and its initial review, the Receiver is aware that 918 purchasers entered into agreements of purchase and sale for units in the 33 Yorkville project, who appear to have provided deposits totaling $160 million.

The Condominium Act (Ontario) provides at section 81(7) that deposit monies shall be held in trust (usually by a law firm) until, among other things, the declarant “ensures that security of a prescribed class is provided for the money…”.  At this time, we understand that for 33 Yorkville, the law firm, Bennett Jones LLP, holds $3.1 million as escrow agent pursuant to a deposit trust agreement.

The “prescribed security” under the Act includes insurance coverage by Tarion Warranty Corporation (the government’s warranty corporation, “Tarion”) for the first $20,000 of a purchaser’s deposits. It also includes excess deposit insurance from an insurance company issued in favour of a purchaser in relation to deposits in excess of $20,000 that are being released from trust.

From its initial review of the materials filed with the receivership application, the Receiver understands that the 33 Yorkville project entities arranged with Westmount Guarantee Services Inc. (“Westmount”) to provide bonds to Tarion to secure the insurance coverage by Tarion in favour of purchasers.  In addition, it appears that the 33 Yorkville project entities arranged excess deposit insurance policies with Westmount to enable deposit amounts in excess of $20,000 to be released from trust. 

The Receiver is in the process of obtaining and reviewing the deposit insurance and bond information as part of its overall project assessment and will provide further comments and information once available.

Pre-Construction Contracts

The Receiver understands that the Cresford Group entered into pre-construction unit purchase contracts with numerous persons in respect of the Clover, Halo and 33 Yorkville projects.  No decisions have been made in respect of these contracts.  Persons who made pre-construction purchases of units in the projects are asked to e-mail the Receiver at, with details of your contract and your contact details.  In due course once decisions have been made on the path forward for each of the projects, you will be contacted by the Receiver regarding the status of these contracts.   Further information will be made available on the status of the receiverships on this website as it becomes available.
