The Real Estate Council of Alberta’s Openness and Transparency Survey is open until May 29, 2017, and we want to hear from as many industry professionals as possible.
As a regulator, RECA isn’t immune to criticism on how open and transparent it is. As part of its current business plan, RECA committed to developing an openness and transparency policy.
In light of that business plan item, Council’s Governance Committee undertook significant research, including surveys with other regulatory bodies, to explore their approaches to openness and transparency. From that research, the Governance Committee developed a Consultation Paper and survey on openness and transparency initiatives. The consultation paper, which provides important context for the survey questions, is available here.
Protecting the public interest is at the core of RECA’s mandate, and we ask that you consider the proposals in the consultation paper within that context.
Please take the time to review the consultation paper and respond to the survey. There is a link to the survey within the consultation paper.
