|CLARIFICATION CONCERNING THE REFERENCE TO THE BROKER IN SUSPENSION NOTICES|
Please note that the reference to the broker who employs the suspended member or authorizes him to act is not in any way meant to suggest that the member was employed by or authorized to act on behalf of this broker when he committed the offences of which he was found guilty.
The Real Estate Brokerage Act and the regulations thereunder require that the notice of suspension of certificate refer to the member’s place of business at the time of the suspension or, failing that, his last place of business. This “place of business” is the office of the broker who employs him or authorizes him to act or, failing that, the last broker that employed him or authorized him to act. The purpose of this measure is to protect the public and allow it to properly identify the member whose certificate is suspended.
