Major government wins including More Homes, More Choice Act, June 2019, Trust in Real Estate Services Act (2nd reading, November 2019) and advocating for Personal Real Estate Corporations (PRECs) made it the best year in OREA’s history in advocacy.
With home ownership rates on the decline in Canada, and a federal election on the calendar, 2019 was time for bold action to eliminate barriers faced by young families and Millennials looking to buy their first home. As a result, OREA didn’t hold back from ensuring the issues facing Canadians were heard loud and clear by each of the political parties.
We're now at the halfway point of our five-year strategic plan, but this year we broke the wheel. In 2019 we had not one, but two big government relation wins.
