MSC Real Estate Division operations in response to COVID-19

WINNIPEG – The Government of Manitoba has announced an order requiring the mandatory closure of all non-essential workplaces effective Wednesday, April 1st at 12:01 am. Under the order, workplaces engaged in capital markets, real estate services, insurance and financial service activities are considered to provide essential services and can remain open. As such, all Manitoba Securities Commission (MSC) staff continue to operate at the level necessary to deliver crucial services to stakeholders and to protect the Manitoba public.
The MSC is taking all necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of its employees and the public as we respond to challenges due to COVID-19.  The majority of MSC staff are working from home at this time.
MSC’s Real Estate Division is working to serve Manitoba’s real estate industry in a safe and efficient manner with as few disruptions as possible. We ask that all in-person traffic should be directed to the main reception desk, and we are encouraging the use of mail, email and fax to deliver renewal and transfer documents to our office wherever possible. For new registrations, or other inquiries, please contact our office at 204-945-2562 or

We will publish further updates on our operations, as the situation develops.

The Manitoba Securities Commission is a division of the Manitoba Financial Services Agency, a Special Operating Agency of the Government of Manitoba that protects investors and promotes fair and efficient capital markets throughout the province.
