The Commission is given the authority to establish and enforce the By-law necessary to regulate the real estate industry in Nova Scotia through the Real Estate Trading Act.
On April 16, 2020, the Commission Board of Directors passed a state-of-emergency by-law (238(b)). This bylaw provides the Commission with the overriding authority to extend or vary time limits for carrying out of any requirements of the By-law, such as postponing the annual general meeting, extending deadlines for CPE, extending renewal deadlines, and the manner by which those requirements are fulfilled, like waiving immediate notarization of some documents, and auditors working electronically instead of with paper. The state-of-emergency by-law is in effect. To view the state-of-emergency by-law and the temporary changes to existing by-law, click the following link:
