The RAHB Board of Directors continues to make the safety of members and the public its main priority.  At an emergency meeting earlier today, the Board of Directors renewed this commitment by reiterating that it is the position of the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington that no further open houses should be held by RAHB members during the Ontario COVID-19 state of emergency. To reinforce this stance, RAHB is immediately suppressing the open house function in Matrix.

RAHB continues to support and follow the direction of the Premier of Ontario and the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario, and will provide members with more information about how REALTORS® are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as it becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time.

As outlined in previous communications, RAHB does not have the authority to direct members to cancel open houses – only the provincial government or the real estate regulator can mandate an end to open houses.
