Have you heard about the REALTOR® Action Network?

Joining the REALTOR® Action Network (RAN) is quick and easy! Find out how you can sign-up with just a few clicks during our upcoming Conference and Trade Show and earn a chance to win a lockbox.

What is RAN?

  • A grassroots community and call-to-action website for REALTORS®.

How does RAN work?

  • Once you join, you can learn about the impact of political decisions as they happen so you can adapt your business to possible change and help clients understand how new legislation might affect them.
  • If BCREA or CREA needs our help to contact elected officials, you’ll receive an email to join a call-to-action.
  • When there’s a call-to-action, all you have to do is log into the site and click a few times to automatically send a letter prepared by BCREA or CREA to an elected official. This will grab their attention, especially if you’ve never written to an elected official before!
  • Typically there are no more than two or three call-to-actions per year.

Why should you join RAN?

  • Supporting your profession’s lobbying efforts can help to send a strong message to government.
  • Last year, about 2,500 REALTORS® from across Canada wrote to federal MPs about the mortgage stress test on uninsured mortgages. Although we weren’t able to change the federal government’s decision on this issue, CREA was able to demonstrate that REALTORS® care about this issue and want the government to reconsider their proposal.
  • The more members join RAN and take action, the more effective we will be!
  • Over 100,000 REALTORS® across Canada can work together to respond to and drive change in  government policy.
