On Wednesday, November 21st CMBA Ontario, in partnership with Appraisal Institute of Canada- Ontario, hosted the final Professional Development Symposium of the year!
We tackled the hot topic of Cannabis Legalization and the affects on the Canadian housing market.
CMBA would like to send a special thank you to Geoff Rabideau from Rabideau Law and Dan Brewer from AIC Ontario for their presentations on the Cannabis Legalization topic.
Geoff provided eye opening information on Bill C-45, and how the industry is developing strategies to deal with the legalization. Dan continued the conversation by delving into appraiser practices surrounding the topic of privacy, and what to look for in an inspection if there are plants being grown in a home
Thank you for the morning. I thought it was wonderful. I am AIC. I appreciated the speakers and the hugs from old buds but most of all I treasure the fact that we all sat together in one room with many different attitudes and ways of seeing things. It was wonderful for the brokers and the lenders and the appraisers to share and learn each others views. I have been designated since 1983 and do not remember ever having had such a rewarding morning professionally. Please let us do this more often.
Thank you very much for allowing me to be in that enlightening atmosphere.
We wish to thank everyone who came out making the event a truly amazing one!
Sponsors, speakers, attendees & volunteers!
We hope to see you at our next event!
