Hearings Schedule

Disciplinary hearings and appeals are open to the public.

The notices of hearing detail the allegations against the licensee, indicate the date on which the hearing will proceed, and the names of the Hearing Panel members. A Notice of Hearing is not a finding of guilt or misconduct.

Space at a hearing is limited. Licensees and members of the public who wish to attend must contact Carolyn Thompson, Hearings and General Counsel Administrator at cthompson@reca.ca, no less than 24 hours before a Hearing to indicate their attendance.

Members of the media who wish to attend a Hearing are required to register in advance by emailing communications@reca.ca.

The hearing schedule below is subject to change on short notice. It is incumbent on Hearing attendees to determine if a Hearing is proceeding as indicated.

Hearings begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Real Estate Council of Alberta office (Suite 202, 1506 11 Ave SW, Calgary) unless otherwise stated. For more information contact RECA Hearings and General Counsel Administrator Carolyn Thompson at cthompson@reca.ca.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, all hearings will be held virtually, until further notice.
