As you are probably aware, today, Premier Doug Ford announced the shutdown of all non-essential services across the province to take effect at 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24, and continue for at least 14 days. Toronto Mayor John Tory has also just declared a state of emergency.
Details on which businesses are considered “essential,” and by implication, those that will be required to shut down, will be announced by the province tomorrow, at which time we’ll send an update to all Members. Please note that businesses with remote working arrangements will likely be able to continue to do business that way.
TRREB is looking into a range of issues that will impact our business, and we will inform Members as we obtain clarification and answers, for example:
- Will land registry offices, financial institutions and other businesses that directly impact real estate be affected?
- Insurance implications for brokerages?
TRREB has been operating, and will continue to operate, with remote work arrangements for employees who are able to do so.
We will provide updates on above and related issues tomorrow as we obtain clarity and answers.
