Since cannabis was legalized in October 2018, there have been many questions with respect to how this new landscape would affect REALTORS® in their day-to-day practice: How does the legal framework on cannabis affect my disclosure obligations? What pitfalls should I avoid in the current cannabis landscape? How can I mitigate the risks associated with cannabis and real estate in BC?

These questions and others are addressed in this new course, which aims to help REALTORS® understand cannabis regulations on the buying, selling, renting, and management of property in British Columbia, and implications for disclosure obligations, tenancy agreements, and strata organizations. 

After completing the course, learners will be able to:

  • identify the cannabis plant and its usual forms of consumption;
  • explain the current legal framework for cannabis in Canada;
  • describe how the legalization of cannabis impacts trading services, rental property management, and strata property management services; and
  • apply recent case law decisions to their daily practice

Hosted on CREA’s training hub, the course is an accredited PDP offering, which means REALTORS® in BC will earn three accredited PDP hours when they finish the course.

Enroll for Cannabis and Real Estate: The New Paradigm before March 31, 2020, using the coupon code 1GY0GMHE to receive 10% off your registration fee.
