FINTRAC/Anti-Spam Compliance Video — Watch Now
BREB
Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (also known as CASL), will come into force on July 1, 2014. CASL regulates how email, text messages, and other forms of electronic messages can be sent for marketing purposes.

New regulatory requirements regarding FINTRAC legislation took effect on February 1, 2014.

To help clarify the regulations, the 50 minute video below provides a review of what is necessary to be in compliance with the legislation. It also answers specific Members questions asked during a recent FINTRAC/Anti-Spam webinar. The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) has released new guidance material to help Members understand anti-spam legislation obligations. CASL regulates how email, text messages, and other forms of electronic messages can be sent for marketing purposes.

Website opens door on condo values
Toronto Star
When Paul and Stacey Johnson arrived at the Market Wharf condos recently to tour three units for sale, they knew far more than most licensed realtors about the dollars and sense of the biggest purchase of their lives. They knew the precise square footage of each suite, instead of just the 800-899 square foot range listed on the MLS. They knew the age of the building, the name of the developer, even which had balconies allowing gas barbecues.
