Ontario boards vote to keep ORWP as mandatory

Editor’s note: In addition to the results below, there were also 29 who abstained (REM did not have this information at the time of writing).


Today, the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) held a special general meeting to discuss and vote on its Ontario Realtors Wellness Plan (ORWP).


A statement released to members of the Lakelands Association of Realtors by Sandy Raymer, executive officer, noted the results:


59 voted in favour of changing ORWP from mandatory to optional, while 73 voted against it. So, ORWP will continue as a mandatory program effective January 1, 2024, as per OREA bylaw.


Another memo to members of the Realtors Association of Grey Bruce Owen Sound (RAGBOS), from executive officer Anne Schneider, notes that members will be charged $164.97 per quarter starting with the December 2023 invoice covering 2024’s first quarter. It also notes that board members not in good standing by 11 am on December 29, 2023 will be suspended from board services until dues are paid in full.
