Errors and Omissions: The Real Estate Insurance Alliance

The REIA program protects insurees from financial loss due to errors, omissions or negligent acts occurring in the course of their duties as defined by provincial licensing legislation. Insurance coverage is provided by an insurance carrier, Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company, through insurance brokerage BFL Canada. REIA’s volunteer board of directors administers the program and act as trustee for members in the group retention portion of the master insurance policy. Insurees can view the policy here.
