The Toronto Real Estate Board is studying ways to ensure Greater Toronto Area home sales data is “protected,” as realtors have rushed to publish the numbers, some of whom posted them publicly, without requiring a password for access.

TREB fought the Competition Bureau to prevent the release of home sales data online for seven years, citing privacy and copyright concerns. It had been ordered by the quasi-judicial Competition Tribunal to allow realtors to share a greater amount of data with clients on password-protected websites and took the ruling to the Federal Court of Appeal and lost, then turned to the country’s top court.
