- Engaged in conduct that undermined public confidence in the industry, harms the integrity of the industry or brings the industry into disrepute and made representations or carried on conduct that was reckless or intentional or that misled or deceived a person or was likely to do so [s.42(a) and (g) of the Real Estate Act Rules]
- Directly or indirectly, advertised, communicated or offered to any person an incentive except an incentive that is provided by and on behalf of the brokerage with which you were registered [s.54(1)(d) of the Real Estate Act Rules]
At the time of the withdrawal application approval, there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions or findings of fact.
By virtue of operation of Part Three of the Real Estate Act, conduct proceedings are discontinued. Mr. O’Neil’s application to withdraw was approved by the Real Estate Council of Alberta and results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership.
