OREA pleased with passing of Ontario’s consumer protection bill

“Ontario REALTORS® are very pleased to see phase one of our proposals for modernizing the rules that govern our industry become law. This legislation provides greater transparency for consumers and protects their right to work with the REALTOR® of their choice.

Ontario REALTORS® are committed to helping Ontarians achieve the dream of home ownership and build strong communities. This is why we are encouraged that the Ontario government listened to our call for higher fines for those who break the trust of consumers. This in turn will instill consumer confidence, deter unethical behaviour and make Ontario a leader in North America when it comes to professional standards in the real estate industry.

We appreciate the government’s commitment to working with Ontario REALTORS® to modernize the rules that govern real estate in Ontario. And we look forward to working with all three political parties on the second phase of the REBBA Review next spring.”

- Tim Hudak, CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association

Quebec and Manitoba have committed to standing firm on this issue and the ambiguity in the legislation has opened the door to court challenges. We look forward to working with Premier-Designate Ford to address Realtor concerns and ensure we protect Ontario homes and families.

York region politicians want a new municipal land transfer tax grab on home ownership

If implemented, the tax would add over $15,000 to an average priced York Region home, impacting housing affordability for all home buyers and making the Canadian dream of home ownership less achievable for thousands of young buyers. This could set a dangerous precedent for housing affordability across the wider Greater Toronto Area and the rest of the province.
