Revamping the REALTOR® Code

Your reputation is worth protecting. That's why we've begun a consultation process with members, boards and associations in order to achieve a consistent national enforcement of the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.

We need to hear from you.

There needs to be a comprehensive, lasting solution that protects the interests of our members—and of their profession. We invite everyone to take our online survey to help us make sure every voice has a chance to be heard. You will be requested to input your membership ID for validation purposes only, however, all survey respondents will be treated anonymously.

Complete the survey here and you have a chance at winning 1 Nest Video Doorbell or one of two Google Homes.

This is an important issue for the future of the REALTOR® profession. Provincial regulators can ensure we practice legally, but only we can ensure we practice ethically.
