Quality of Life Matters

As REALTORS® we know what people value most in a home and a community. It's part of our job. Our clients talk to us about those values every day.

Quality of Life is an approach that local real estate boards, associations and individual REALTORS® have adopted to demonstrate the commitment of the real estate profession to improve Quality of Life throughout the province of Ontario.

Quality of life is based on five principles:

  1. Protecting economic vitality
    One key to Quality of Life is a strong economy. A vibrant economy creates jobs, expands the taxbase and revitalizes communities.
  2. Providing housing opportunities
    We all want a safe, decent and affordable range of housing near where we work, shop and play. We must grow the supply of housing – including choices about design, cost and location.
  3. Preserving our environment
    REALTORS® recognize one of the most important elements of Quality of Life is the environment: clean air and water, parks and open space.
  4. Protecting property owners
    A strong economy depends on preserving the investment people have made in their homes by protecting the ability to freely own, use, buy and sell real property.
  5. Building better communities
    Better communities come when governments work together to fund infrastructures such as roads, water, schools and transit that are the framework for a community’s Quality of Life.

The goal of the quality of life philosophy is to enable people  to get what they value most: jobs, homes and better communities.
