Code of Ethics


                        CREA Code of Ethics

The Code of Ethics Under all is the land. Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership depend the survival and growth of free institutions and of our civilization. Through the REALTOR®, the land resource of the nation reaches its highest use and private land ownership its widest distribution. The REALTOR® is instrumental in molding the form of his or her community and the living and working conditions of its people. Such functions impose grave social responsibilities which REALTORS® can meet only by diligent preparation, and considering it a civic duty to dedicate themselves to the fulfillment of a REALTOR's® obligations to society. The REALTOR® therefore must be zealous to maintain, and continually strive to improve, the professional standards of his or her calling:

• by keeping informed as to developments and trends in real estate
• by endeavouring to protect the public against fraud, misrepresentation or
  unethical practice in connection with real estate transactions
• by rendering services and opinions based only on the REALTOR's®

   knowledge,  training, qualifications and experience in real estate  

• by seeking no unfair advantage over, nor injuring directly or indirectly, the

   reputation of, nor publicly disparaging the business practice of other


• by being loyal to the REALTOR's® Real Estate Board and Provincial/

  Territorial Association and active in their work

In the interpretation of his or her obligations, the REALTOR® can take no safer guide than that which has been embodied in the Golden Rule - "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". No inducement of profit and no instructions from clients or customers can ever justify departure from the ideals of fair dealing and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty standard of moral conduct in business relations. Accepting this standard as his or her own, each REALTOR® pledges to observe the spirit of the Code in all dealings and to conduct business in accordance with the Standards of Business Practice as adopted by The Canadian Real Estate Association.
