March 2, 2021 -- Today, the BC government introduced amendments to the Real Estate Services Act to bring together the Real Estate Council of BC (RECBC) and the Office of the Superintendent of Real Estate (OSRE) within the BC Financial Services Authority (BCFSA).
The amalgamation, which will take place later in 2021, will mean that BCFSA becomes the single regulator of BC’s financial services sector, including real estate. Integrating oversight of the real estate and financial services sectors is an important step forward in providing British Columbians with modern, effective and efficient regulation.
Until its amalgamation with BCFSA, RECBC will continue to regulate the real estate profession in BC, enforcing the licensing and conduct requirements of the Real Estate Services Act for individuals and brokerages engaged in real estate sales, rental property and strata management.
Following the integration of the three regulators, BCFSA will have regulatory responsibility for:
- Licensed real estate professionals
- Unlicensed real estate activity
- Real estate development marketing
- Mortgage brokers
- Credit unions
- Pension plans
- Trust companies
- Insurance companies
- Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation of BC
BCFSA, RECBC and OSRE are committed to keeping all stakeholders informed while work continues towards a smooth and seamless transition later this summer.
