January 22, 2020 – Karen Lynn Blain: Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry

Calgary, Alberta – On January 22, 2020, Karen Lynn Blain, previously a real estate associate in Calgary, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.

At the time of her application, Ms. Blain was the subject of an investigation under the Real Estate Act. The issues under investigation were whether Ms. Blain:

  • contravened the Real Estate Act Rules by participated in fraudulent or unlawful activities in connection with the provision of services or in any dealings
  • failed to notify the executive director of the discipline rendered against her by her trade association

At the time of Ms. Blain’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 Ms. Blain’s application to withdraw, and this results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership; conduct proceedings are now discontinued.
