The provincial state of emergency that was in place for more than a year has now been lifted. For British Columbians, this means unlimited indoor and outdoor personal gatherings, an end to mask mandates and the freedom to travel within Canada. For REALTORS®, this means the option to return to open houses and in-person showings.

As we progress through BC's Restart Plan, we must still keep the safety of our communities top of mind and continue to follow the advice and recommendations of regulators, public health officials, and government.

Specifically, brokerages should review WorkSafeBC's Communicable Disease Prevention Guide for Employers and ensure brokerage staff and Realtors follow safe practices to help reduce the risk of workplace transmission of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.

While most of the COVID-19 guidance on this page no longer aligns with public health orders, we will continue to maintain this page, providing new information and resources as they become available.

The content is divided into six sections:

  1. Financial Aid: understanding and accessing financial supports.
  2. Conducting Transactions: conducting real estate transactions while practicing social distancing.
  3. Standard Forms & Liability: understanding contracts, standard forms, FINTRAC compliance and liability.
  4. Economic Impacts: guidance from BCREA Economics on market impacts.
  5. Supporting Clients: information to support your clients.
  6. Professional Development: continuing your professional development online.
Also, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for real-time resources.
