The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) is responsible for regulating the activities of real estate brokerages, Brokers and Salespersons in Ontario. RECO administers the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002, and associated Regulations (referred to collectively as REBBA 2002) on behalf of the provincial government.
Protecting the Public Interest
RECO regulates the activities of brokerages, Brokers and Salespersons trading in real estate in the public interest. The individual and collective interests of consumers and real estate registrants must always be balanced to ensure that the broader public interest is served. Protecting the public interest is achieved through many activities including:
Enforcing standards required to obtain and maintain registration as a brokerage, Broker or Salesperson and delivering the duties of the Registrar, REBBA 2002 (The Registrar).
Establishing minimum requirements for Pre-registration and Continuing Education courses.
Conducting routine inspections of brokerage offices to ensure compliance with REBBA 2002 and educating Brokers on correct procedures.
Addressing inquiries, concerns and complaints about the conduct of registrants received from all sources and taking appropriate action to protect the public interest.
Establishing and administering insurance requirements.
Promoting ongoing education, and competent, knowledgeable and professional service
Upon successful completion of The Salesperson Registration Education Program, you are eligible to make application to RECO and are required to make application to RECO to become registered as a Salesperson.
