About the Real Estate Institute of Manitoba (REIM)

REIM is your local source for networking and professional development. We organize seminars, luncheons, and special events for members to learn, connect and expand their business contacts. The Chapter conducts local outreach activities to promote the Chapter, REIC, and our members to local employers, students, and the public.

REIM is run by an active and dedicated group of volunteers supported by an administrative staff.
