As of June 2, 2021 Ontario is lifting its Stay-at-Home order and on June 14th Ontario is set to enter Step One of its Roadmap to Reopen.

Most of the restrictions related to non-essential business, activities and gatherings remain in place.

REALTORS® should continue to follow all existing public health guidelines, limit in-person business as much as possible, use virtual tools and conduct scheduled showings only.

Everyone in Ontario is strongly advised to stay at home, avoid social gatherings, minimize travel between zones, and limit contact with those from outside of their household.

Open Houses & Door Knocking

Open houses are prohibited across the province during the emergency brake shutdown. Scheduled in-person showings are permitted, provided they follow all health and safety guidelines. KWAR continues to advise members to use virtual open houses, virtual showings, and digital documents first and to the greatest extent possible.

This also means door-to-door knocking and canvassing neighbourhoods should not be taking place at this time.

The KWAR office remains closed and all store purchases can be made online and picked up at a designated time.

Many Realtors are now using special pre-screening and consent forms (like this one developed by CREA) prior to potential buyers viewing a property for sale or rent.

Did you know you can attach these forms and other documents in Matrix and ShowingTime so that all Realtors booking an appointment will receive them automatically?

We have created this 3-minute tutorial to walk you through this simple process.
