Tarion is making a lot of changes to improve consumer protection and modernize our operations. As part of this transition, we’re going to be making a minor change to our name.
Instead of ‘Tarion Warranty Corporation’, we will now just be ‘Tarion’.
Why the change?
New homes in Ontario come with a warranty provided by the builder and backstopped by Tarion. Our name change is meant to help clarify for home buyers that it is the builder’s warranty – this is why we’re dropping the word “warranty” from our name in our consumer-focused materials.
This change is in response to:
• A recommendation from the Auditor General of Ontario
• A need to eliminate confusion about Tarion’s role and to clarify how we can help new home buyers
• A need for consumers to understand that the warranty on their new home is provided by the builder, not Tarion
