Mireille Lapalme (formerly McGowan) - Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry

Calgary, Alberta – On January 20, 2016, Mireille Lapalme (formerly McGowan), previously a real estate associate in Calgary, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.

At the time of her application, Ms. Lapalme was the subject of conduct proceedings under the Real Estate Act related to her involvement surrounding allegations of mortgage fraud. There has been no disciplinary hearing, admissions or findings of fact.

The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Ms. Lapalme’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, real estate appraisal and property management 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.
