Calgary, Alberta – On July 18, 2018, Alain Saulnier, previously a real estate associate in the Edmonton area, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.
Prior to his application, the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) had notified Mr. Saulnier of its receipt of a complaint concerning his conduct while showing a property to a client, and commenced an investigation into his conduct.
At the time of Mr. Saulnier’s withdrawal from industry, the investigation was not complete, and there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions, or findings of fact.
The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Mr. Saulnier’s application to withdraw, and this results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership; conduct proceedings are now discontinued.
The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is an independent, non-government agency, responsible for governing real estate, mortgage broker, property management, and real estate appraisal industry professionals under Alberta’s Real Estate Act. RECA’s mandate is to protect consumers and to provide services that enhance and improve the industry and the business of industry professionals.
