The annual pilgrimage of REALTORS® to Parliament Hill set new records this year.
CREA federal affairs chair Lorne Weiss says 331 delegates from across Canada attended PAC Days in late April. MPs from all political parties including two ministers from Manitoba held 180 meetings with REALTORS®.
“This demonstrates that our industry is full of respected leaders who are putting a strong voice to work for our communities. We’re building meaningful connections with elected officials and this engagement matters because effective advocacy only happens when you can meet and work together,” Weiss said.
Manitoba delegates hosted a reception and dinner which was attended by a record number of 12 MPs.
