IN THE COMMUNITY
The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board has always understood that community participation is what guarantees quality of life in the places we live. Community involvement is what sets REALTORS® apart. From student bursaries to heritage projects to recognition awards to industry advocacy, VIREB has always looked for ways to be involved with our communities.
Today, VIREB works hard to promote policies that lead to healthy communities, while our members support grassroots charities and causes that make a difference in the lives of our friends, families and neighbours. Here are some of the things we do.
QUALITY OF LIFE
In 2004, the British Columbia Real Estate Association and its member boards adopted an approach called Quality of Life. The goal of the Quality of Life approach is to recommend policies that will enable people to achieve what they value most: jobs, homes and better communities. Basically, what’s good for the province is good for real estate.
