Description of the Inspection Committee

The Inspection Committee is comprised of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 9 members. Its role is to oversee the activities of licence holders. Members do not personally carry out inspections but appoint inspectors to do so. Following a protocol, the Inspection Committee meets and inspectors present their inspection reports regarding brokers and agency executive officers who require various interventions.

The Committee may make any appropriate recommendation to inspected brokers and agency executive officers and have them sign an undertaking to comply with a section of the Real Estate Brokerage Act or one of its regulations.

In addition, the Committee may require a broker or agency executive officer to successfully complete a course or a training activity. If the Committee finds that a violation of the Act or a regulation has been committed, it immediately notifies the Syndic.

Required availability

The Committee holds approximately four sessions per year. Meetings are held during the day, via videoconference or in person. You also need to allow time for preparation before the sessions.


Committee members receive attendance fees as compensation. The value of the attendance fees is $560 for a half-day meeting and $880 for a full-day meeting. These sums include preparatory work, which varies in length.
