Public MLS System in Canada – How Does It Work?

The public system is the official website of the Canadian Real Estate Association. It&39;s the gateway to all registrations across Canada. As stated on their website, the mls public website is a support provided by REALTORS® in Canada to assist the market properties listed in the ml file.

The definition of mls is a multiple referencing service.

Almost all local board systems provide data to the public system to facilitate public search of lists of suppliers in their respective regions and across Canada.

Everybody people who have access to a computer have access to the public messaging system in Canada. It is similar to the American public system in the United States.

Most real estate agencies In Canada (the Toronto Real Estate Commission – TREB – being one of them), regularly download partial information about the list in the mls public system.

It is important to know that the mls public system is intended for the public and provides only limited information about the lists in question. Realtors use their local mls system to search and find mls lists and they have access to many more details and information on a given list than those available on the public mls system. The Canadian Privacy Act is the main reason for this.


The mls public system is available to anyone to search and view mls properties listed across Canada.
