Minister Gambin-Walsh Recognizes Realtors Care Week

Mr. Speaker, November 18 to 22 is Realtors Care Week, designated by the Canadian Real Estate Association and the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Realtors.

Realtors volunteer their time and raise money for causes and charities close to their hearts. Some of the activities they will be participating in this week include supporting a local safe haven for women and children experiencing domestic violence, collecting food and money to support a school lunch program, and volunteering at a homeless shelter.

On behalf of my Honourable colleagues, I commend the members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Realtors for their volunteer service and encourage the people of the province to support realtors this week, and throughout the year, in their efforts to build stronger communities.

Mr. Speaker, we will soon bring forth proposed changes to the Real Estate Trading Act. I would like to thank members of the association for their tremendous effort and their focus on helping bring about improvements for their industry. The proposed legislation will better protect the real estate profession and consumers now and in the future.

Thank you.
