Don Nielsen - Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry

Calgary, Alberta – On January 20, 2016, Don Nielsen, previously a real estate associate in Calgary, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.

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

The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Mr. Nielsen’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.
