About REIN

The Real Estate Investment Network (REIN) was founded in 1992 and is Canada's longest standing community of real estate investors.

For over 25 years, the Real Estate Investment Network has been supporting its Members in creating sustainable wealth and freedom through the vehicle of real estate.

Today we are Canada's most trusted real estate investment education, analysis, research and strategic leadership resource. By leveraging our economic insights and analysis, and using proven strategies taught by REIN, to date our Members have transacted more than 37,000 properties, representing more than $4.1 billion dollars of real estate.

REIN creates the opportunity for financial certainty for its Members as it fosters a community of likeminded investors and gives them exclusive access to critical systems and documents, online tools and learning programs, research and economic updates, audio, REIN Member meetings and events.

REIN provides its Members, its corporate and media clients, and the public with unbiased research and education on investing in real estate markets across Canada.

REIN creates real estate research using the analysis tools, formulas and economic fundamentals described in Real Estate Investing in Canada: Creating Wealth with the ACRE System 2.0, the best-selling book on Canadian real estate.

REIN provides proven analysis based on economic fundamentals and current market trends so homeowners and real estate investors can make decisions based on future reality, not emotion.

Our W.I.N. with Real Estate event is a free public event that we host for people just starting out in real estate investing. Our network is all about sharing knowledge, and the W.I.N. events are designed so you can decide if real estate investing is right for you, no strings attached.

Our REIN Member Meetings are exclusive for REIN Members. They focus on real estate investing content and industry updates presented by expert speakers. The W.I.N. with Real Estate events are for those just starting out, or looking to decide if real estate investing is right for them and want to get their questions answered. As a guest, you may pay to attend a REIN Member meeting but for your first experience with REIN, we recommend attending a free W.I.N. event to start.

Business cards, calculator and your note-taking device of choice: e.g. pen/paper, tablet, laptop (fully charged is best as there are limited resources to plug in). We also suggest bringing a sweater or jacket as the room temperature varies and we want you to be as comfortable as possible.
