About Us

The Nova Scotia Real Estate Commission is the regulatory body for trading in real estate in the province. Established by the provincial government in 1997, the Commission is an independent, non-profit agency that supervises the professional activities of all real estate licensees in Nova Scotia.

The Commission’s mandate is to ensure consumer confidence through the administration of the Real Estate Trading Act and the Commission Bylaw. We work toward public protection through:

  • administering and enforcing the Real Estate Trading Act, its Regulations and the Commission Bylaw;
  • setting performance standards that govern trading in real estate;
  • setting licensing requirements and entrance standards; and
  • investigating complaints and imposing disciplinary sanctions under the Act.

About Self-regulation

Real estate in Nova Scotia is fully self-regulated. Professional self-regulation is in essence the protection of the public interest and all of the regulatory body’s decisions and actions are done in the public interest, to protect real estate consumers from incompetent or unethical practices by licensees.
