Calgary, Alberta – On August 8, 2019, Service Alberta announced a Ministerial Order that requires the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) to cease any changes to bylaws, rules, or policy directives unless approval by the Minister is provided. This also applies to any previously approved but not yet enacted changes.
“As the independent governing authority for Alberta’s real estate industry, consumer protection is at the core of our mandate,” said Robert Telford, Chair of RECA. “We will work diligently and cooperatively with the Minister to ensure compliance with the Ministerial Order and are committed to providing updates to industry members and stakeholders as they become available.”
RECA remains fully committed to transparency and openness and we thank the Government of Alberta for working with us to ensure the ongoing integrity of the industry and protection of consumers.
