MARCH NEWSLETTER 
Happy Women's Day To All Of The Women In Our Lives 

International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8th every year. It commemorates the movement for women's rights. The earliest Women's Day observance, called "National Woman's Day," was held on February 28, 1909 in New York, organized by the Socialist Party of America at the suggestion of Theresa Malkiel. Though there have been claims that the day was commemorating a protest by women garment workers in New York on March 8, 1857, this has been described as a myth.

The 2018 theme for International Women's Day is #PressForProgress

With the recent Hollywood film industry scandal and World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away - there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress.

And while we know that gender parity won't happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day.

We Did It!

We have successfully fought back against the Home Energy Rating and Disclosure (HER&D) program.

Since 2016, OREA has been fighting to stop HER&D.

If implemented, HER&D would require a home seller to conduct an energy audit before listing their home. The program put home owners of older homes, like seniors, at a huge disadvantage. Receiving a low energy score on an older home could cost an owner thousands of dollars in hard-earned equity.

The program also unfairly forced REALTORS® to post the energy score on the MLS® listing. There are other methods for selling a home, and yet only the MLS® was targeted.

After a lot of hard work from your government relations team led by Chair John Oddi, we have successfully fought back against this proposal!

This week, we got a letter from the government which stated, “The province has decided not to proceed with the implementation of a HER&D program at this time.” This means that the province has listened to OREA and put the brakes on HER&D.

While this is another big win for REALTORS®, this issue has been a wakeup call. Governments at all levels are struggling to address issues relating to climate change and the housing sector is being asked to play a part in that work.

We must be thoughtful and propose alternatives to programs like HER&D, or we will be steam rolled by them.

We will continue to provide you with updates if this issue progresses.

To get involved with more issues like this, that matter to your business and Ontario home owners, visit www.ontariorealtorparty.com and sign up to the Ontario REALTOR Party. When you want a government to make the right choice for your business, there’s nothing like strength in numbers.
