The service plan outlines our goals and objectives for the next three years, along with the performance measures we will use to track our progress towards achieving them.
The Real Estate Council of BC is proud to present its Strategic Plan 2018 – 2021.
“Our mandate is to regulate the real estate industry in the public interest. This plan presents our vision for the future,” said Council Chair Robert Holmes. “I want to thank the many stakeholders and organizational partners who provided input on how to enhance consumer protection. Their participation was of great assistance to us during the process of developing this plan.”
“During our consultations with stakeholders, we were privileged to hear the thoughts and perspectives of many individuals, both industry and non-industry members, on the challenges and opportunities ahead for real estate regulation in BC. Their comments were an integral part of our development of goals and objectives for the next three years.”
The renewed vision and plan support the RECBC’s transition from a self-regulating body, to a Crown agency with Council members appointed by and accountable to the provincial government.
RECBC’s vision for the future is of a province where real estate consumers have confidence in competent and ethical real estate professionals. Our strategic plan will support the realization of this vision, by focusing the RECBC’s resources to achieve its strategic goals and objectives.
Our strategy is based on achieving three interconnected goals:
- To ensure that consumers and real estate licensees have access to independent, accurate and relevant information
- To raise awareness of the RECBC as a trusted, consumer-focused regulator
- To foster a culture of service excellence through employee engagement
RECBC’s strategic plan works in parallel with our commitments to government, which are outlined in our Service Plan and Mandate Letter.
