Show/Hide AnswerAbout Hearings

RECBC holds disciplinary hearings, Special Compensation Fund hearings and qualification hearings. All hearings are open to the public unless otherwise indicated. Notices of upcoming hearings are published on this page approximately two months in advance of the scheduled dates. A Notice of Disciplinary Hearing is not a finding of guilt or misconduct.

Disciplinary hearings are in most cases held in two parts: a hearing on liability that is followed, in cases where there is a finding of liability, by a penalty hearing. Decisions are published following each liability and penalty hearing.

Parties receive a Notice of Hearing approximately six months before the date of the proceeding. All licensees have the legal right under the Real Estate Services Act to propose a consent order should they wish to resolve a matter by consent rather than proceeding to a hearing. If the proposal is accepted by a Consent Order Review Committee of the Council, no disciplinary hearing will take place.

The majority of disciplinary matters are resolved by way of consent order, and published on the Decisions section of our website. More information on the disciplinary process is available here.

Show/Hide AnswerAttending Hearings

Hearings are open to the public unless the hearing committee should determine that a hearing or a portion of a hearing must be held in camera to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of financial or personal matters, or other confidential information that would be damaging to any of the parties. RECBC does not publish information about licensees that would be considered unreasonable invasions of privacy and redacts third-party information in any published material.
