(1.1) In issuing a certificate under subsection (1) the minister may determine the qualifying resort development complex to be a seasonal operation and may require it to be available to the rental pool during specific times of the year, reserving the right to reassess a unit holder's tax credit for failure to comply with the minister's requirement.
2. (1) Section 5 of the regulations is amended by adding immediately after subsection (5) the following:

(2) Paragraphs 5(7)(d) and (e) of the regulations are repealed and the following substituted:
(d) title to the property has been passed to the purchaser, cash payment has been received in full by the developer and the property is made available to the rental pool for a 20 year period;
(d.1) where the property is determined to be a seasonal operation under subsection 4(1.1), that the property is available to the rental pool during the times of the year required under that subsection;
