The Residential Property Manager Industry Council Wants to Hear from You!
| April 08, 2021
The Residential Property Manager Industry Council is the body that sets the licensing requirements and standards of practice for the residential property manager and condominium manager industries. If you provide residential property management services or work as a condominium manager, we want to hear from you! Read on to see where you can take part in the regulation of your industry.
Recently, you may have received a similar engagement message from the Board of Directors or from other Industry Councils you may hold a licence with. In the case of the Board, their engagements have to do with RECA overall, and the other Industry Councils are focused on issues in their own sectors. The engagement opportunities below are hosted by the Residential Property Manager Industry Council, and are focused on issues and trends in the property management and condominium management industries specifically.
Informing RECA’s Strategic Direction
The feedback the Industry Council receives from property management and condominium manager stakeholders will inform the strategic planning process the Board of Directors will undertake later in 2021, resulting in a comprehensive and informed Strategic Plan for the coming years. If you want the property or condominium management trends and issues you see in your day-to-day business to be considered in our strategic planning process, we need to hear from you.
To directly provide your thoughts on RECA’s future strategic direction, go to our Strategic Planning page and let us know what you think! Make sure to enter your thoughts in the Residential Property Manager Industry Council field.

Stakeholder Engagement Policy
Stakeholder engagement is a clear priority for RECA. At its March 5 meeting, the Board of Directors approved a Stakeholder Engagement Policy that sets the framework for why, how, and with whom the Board, the Industry Councils, and RECA Administration engages. Engagement will be timely, consistent, equal, meaningful, and transparent. This policy is to ensure you have the opportunity to have your voice heard by the Board and Industry Councils, and directly participate in the regulation of your industry.
