2019/2020 Voting Structure Task Force

Over the past few years there have been several changes amongst the Canadian Real Estate Association’s (CREA) board and provincial association membership. While these are welcomed developments, they have a direct impact on CREA in terms of the votes member boards and provincial associations are allocated at CREA assemblies. As a result, questions have been raised as to whether CREA’s current voting structure is fair and sustainable. A Voting Structure Task Force was formed to examine this issue.

On this site you will find:

  • The minutes from Voting Structure Task Force meetings and agenda packages.
  • A white paper intended to set the stage for a constructive dialogue on what, if any, changes to CREA’s voting structure are needed to ensure CREA remains an effective national association with a sustainable voting structure.
  • Other background material that summarize this challenging issue.

White Paper

This white paper summarizes the work of the Voting Structure Task Force to-date and poses a series of questions we invite you to provide feedback on.
