October 2022

Greetings Real Property Community,

As we gear up for a busy fall, there are many developments underway at the Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC). It is my pleasure to inform you about the exciting programs and events RPIC is set to offer you in the remainder of 2022, as well as some of the meaningful shifts happening within the Institute.

Mentorship Program
Applications for RPIC’s 2022-2023 Mentorship Program are open for just a few more days! Mentors and Mentees seeking a place in the program are asked to submit their applications by October 31.

There are many benefits for both mentors and mentees. Mentors will deepen their leadership skills, connect with a new cadre of professionals, foster the growth of emerging leaders, and pass along their expert knowledge. Mentees will connect with industry experts, develop personally and professionally, gain knowledge to advance in their careers, and learn the industry’s best practices.

We are looking forward to receiving your application! Learn more and submit an application form online.

RPIC’s Annual General Meeting
RPIC’s Annual General Meeting was held on October 12, signalling that we have once again reached a season of transition within the Institute. At the 2022 AGM, we welcomed several new faces to our board of directors and bid farewell to some outgoing members.

I would like to thank our outgoing board members for their outstanding contributions to RPIC over the years. Because of your hard work and dedication, we have been able to provide the real property community with meaningful opportunities for connection and enrichment.

During this time of transition, we pass along the torch to our incoming members. We’re happy to have you join us!
