TREB fires back at Competition Bureau

The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) filed its official response to the Competition Bureau’s complaint on Friday, requesting that the Competition Tribunal dismiss the application with costs payable to TREB.

“We have patiently and tolerantly waited for the opportunity to respond to the Competition Bureau, and today we filed a response rejecting the commissioner’s position and outlining why we believe the application has no merit,” says TREB president Richard Silver in a news release.

“TREB has followed through on its commitment to provide Realtor members with greater flexibility to serve their clients by developing a Virtual Office Website (VOW) policy. The VOW policy will allow for secure password-protected websites designed to allow consumers to search and display MLS listing data, with the benefit of a Realtor member’s oversight, supervision and accountability,” says the release.
