More than 300 Realtors from across Canada met recently with their Members of Parliament in Ottawa at CREA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) Days.

The Durham Region Association of Realtors (DRAR) Political Affairs Committee (PAC) won the Outstanding PAC Team Award for a large association. The national award recognizes and honours volunteer initiatives and enterprises in advancing federal Realtor issues.

“This award recognizes that DRAR has a long history of advocating for good public policy with our elected officials, thus ensuring that housing continues to play an integral role in our local economy,” says Roger Bouma, 2015 PAC chair.

CREA’s 2015 PAC issues include indexing the Home Buyers’ Plan to the Consumer Price Index in  $ 2,500 increments; and supporting workers through job relocation, which would make the Home Buyers’ Plan available to help maintain homeownership after relocating more than 40 km from an existing home to secure employment.
