Colloque immobilier: A winning event for the public

BROSSARD, QC, Oct. 5, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Helping advance real estate and mortgage brokerage in Québec and promoting innovation in order to better protect the public is the goal achieved by the Organisme d'autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ), at the end of the Colloque immobilier held today at the Centre Mont-Royal, in Montréal.

The discussions of over 400 experts and professionals on the key issues affecting consumers during a real estate transaction have helped advance the search for concrete solutions. Current topics covered include pre-purchase inspection, co-ownership management, the significant responsibility of agency executive officers, as well as the revision of the Real Estate Brokerage Act.

Nadine Lindsay, President and Chief Executive Officer of the OACIQ, is pleased with the success of this event organized by the OACIQ: "By their presence and quality of their contribution, participants have shown that they are committed to enabling today's and tomorrow's consumers to carry out their real estate transactions with great confidence, knowing that everything has been put in place to properly oversee these transactions."

A winning strategy

The holding of the Colloque immobilier is in line with a strategic direction of the Organization, which aims in particular at promoting a culture of compliance among professionals licensed by the OACIQ and reinforcing the oversight of real estate and mortgage brokerage.

"In an industry where practices face new challenges, and in the context of the revision of the Real Estate Brokerage Act, I strongly believe that initiatives like this Colloque will enable us to play an even more effective role as the regulator of real estate and mortgage brokerage in Québec," said Michel Léonard, Chairman of the OACIQ Board of Directors.

Revision of the Real Estate Brokerage Act

Today, while the OACIQ was holding its first Colloque immobilier, the Finance Minister, Carlos Leiãto, tabled an omnibus bill amending the financial sector, including the Real Estate Brokerage Act. At the event, the Organization held a conference to present the broad lines of the amendments to the Act to some 400 participants.

"The introduction of the bill is timely. The OACIQ welcomes the Finance Minister's initiative to reflect on the future of real estate and mortgage brokerage. We will examine the components of the bill in detail and share our comments as soon as possible, always in order to protect the public and ensure an adequate and fair oversight of real estate and mortgage brokerage," noted Nadine Lindsay.
