It’s time for change on RECO continuing education


Dear Member,

One of the most common complaints I hear from REALTORS® is about the poor quality of RECO’s continuing education (CE) program.

It’s time for change

Continuing education is important to maintaining high professional standards in our industry.

The current program is failing REALTORS®, and we believe it is time for change.

To help raise the bar when it comes to CE, OREA’s REBBA Review Taskforce has released it’s second white paper – “Raising the Bar: A New Vision of Continuing Education for REALTORS®.” It includes a series of bold policy proposals aimed at strengthening the CE program.

Tell us what you think

We need your feedback on these proposals because it will determine which ideas OREA takes to the government. Visit today and help us strengthen continuing education in Ontario.

Alternatively, members can submit feedback to or by connecting with us on social media – Facebook or Twitter.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to shape the future of our profession, don’t let it pass you by.

Yours sincerely,

Ettore Cardarelli
2017 OREA President
