Prohibition on in-person open houses will be lifted in Step Three
Of significant importance for the real estate industry and our Members is that with Step 3, the prohibition on in-person real estate open houses will be lifted, with capacity limited to the number of people that can maintain a physical distance of two metres. TRREB urges caution, and continues to advise Members to consider everyone’s health and safety first and foremost when deciding to host an in-person open house. It is suggested you limit showings to one family group in the property at a time.
Please refer to these best practices which are applicable to in-person open houses and showings.
Reminders about previously lifted restrictions
Short-Term Rentals – The booking of short-term rentals for recreational purposes is permitted. Inter-Provincial Travel – Non-essential travel between Ontario, Manitoba and Quebec is also permitted as the ban on interprovincial travel was lifted back on June 16. Residential Evictions Resumed – Eviction orders for all tenancies subject to the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) resumed on June 2, with the end of the Stay-At-Home Order.
The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) is carrying on most of its business using virtual video conferencing tools. Members who own investment properties or who are supporting clients, can visit the LTB website to learn more.

The province will remain in Step Three of the Roadmap for at least 21 days and until 80 per cent of the eligible population aged 12 and over has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 75 per cent have received their second, with no public health unit having less than 70 per cent of their population fully vaccinated. Upon meeting these thresholds, the vast majority of public health and workplace safety measures, including capacity limits for indoor and outdoor settings and limits for social gatherings, will be lifted. Only a small number of measures will remain in place, including the requirement for passive screening, such as posting a sign, and businesses requiring a safety plan.
