Join the BC Real Estate Association (BCREA) on Wednesday, October 21 at 10:00 am PT to explore the impacts of the upcoming provincial election on the BC real estate sector.


During this 75-minute webinar and expert panel discussion, we will review the key asks that BCREA and real estate boards will make of any new provincial government and explore the risks and opportunities for the real estate sector arising from the changing political landscape. We will also have a close look at what could happen at the federal level that could impact real estate in BC.

This webinar will feature an expert panel discussion, moderated by BCREA Chief Executive Officer Darlene Hyde, who will be joined by:

  • Trevor Hargreaves, Vice President of Government Relations and Stakeholder Engagement, BCREA,
  • Linda Kristal, Vice President, Advocacy, Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), and
  • Neil Moody, Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC (CHBA BC).

This webinar is open to all REALTORS®, real estate boards, and industry professionals.
