In brief, the answer to your question is yes, you can claim the condo fees. SEE BELOW:

If you earn rental income from a condominium unit, you can deduct the expenses that you would usually deduct from rental income. You can also deduct condominium fees representing your share of the upkeep, repairs, maintenance, and other current expenses of the common property. For more information, see Interpretation Bulletin IT-304, Condominiums.

---------------------------------------

Canada Revenue Agency allows you to claim any reasonable expense that you may incur on rental property. The two most common types are capital and current expenses and include items such as advertising costs, legal and accounting expenses, utilities, interest, maintenance costs, property taxes, administration fees, office expenses and wages. These can be reported on form T776, Statement of Real Estate Rentals.
