Political affairs conference focuses on three issues

November is fast approaching, and so is OREA’s Political Affairs Conference (PAC).


Queen's ParkNovember is fast approaching, and so is OREA’s Political Affairs Conference (PAC). It will be held from Nov. 20 to 22 at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in downtown Toronto. This is an excellent opportunity for board delegates to meet with their local MPPs to discuss and lobby on various issues of importance to the Ontario real estate industry.

This year, OREA is focusing on three essential issues. First, the delegates will continue to lobby for an amendment of the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 to facilitate usage of electronic agreements of purchase and sale. Second, Ontario REALTORS® will keep fighting for the right to form personal real estate corporations. Finally, OREA is to continue pushing for a province-wide registry for former marijuana grow operations.

The conference features prominent politicians and public figures, including: Tim Hudak, Ontario Progressive Conservative party leader; David Caplan, former Ontario health minister; Robert Fisher, a political analyst and broadcast journalist; political pundits Ezra Levant of SunTV and Stephen LeDrew of CP24; and many others.

This year PAC will once again include the Jam with a Past President Event, hosted by Brian Walker. The musical jam session takes place the first evening of the conference and showcases the talent of REALTORS® from across Ontario.
