Open Houses Prohibited In Halton Region

Effective Monday, November 16, 2020, Halton Region was placed under the Red “Control” level of the new Province of Ontario “COVID-19 response framework: keeping Ontario safe and open” guidelines.

For OMDREB Members and other REALTORS trading in Oakville, Milton, and Halton Hills, this has a direct impact on the way you conduct business.

When a region enters the Red “Control” level, in-person open houses are not permitted. OMDREB Members must cancel any scheduled in-person open houses and refrain from hosting them until further notice. Members can safety conduct open houses virtually with online tools such as Live Streams and have them advertised on by using the “Virtual Open House” feature in ITSO.

Please note that while in-person showings are allowed provided they are by appointment only and follow all health and safety guidelines, The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board strongly recommends moving private showings into the virtual space as well.

Other regions that have moved into the Red “Control” level include Peel, Toronto, Hamilton, and York.

Thank you for your continued efforts to keep our communities safe during this time.
