REAL Ideas
for Homeownership.

For many Canadians, homeownership can seem like an impossible dream. With an election just around the corner, let’s ensure housing affordability is a top priority for all political parties.

As REALTORS®, you witness first-hand the anxiety Canadians feel as they look to enter the housing market and the challenges they face when it comes to buying a home.

The 2019 federal election is our moment to advocate for the policies and solutions we know will make a real difference for Canadians. We are asking REALTORS® to speak with one voice and call on political parties in Canada to adopt the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA)’s policy solutions.
