About IRAC

About Us

The Indigenous Real Estate Association Canada is a member funded association dedicated to education, communication and advocacy about leasehold interests on first nations reserve lands in Canada. We develop real estate licencing educational materials and professional development training for a wide range of professions involved in the administration of land development and transactions of leasehold interests on reserve. Membership is open to all those with an interest in learning more about what it means to live, work and play on reserve lands.


IRAC provides curriculum development services to Provincial Real Estate licensing programs for new agent and broker education and continuing professional development.


We communicate the value of living, working and playing on Indian Reserve lands throughout Canada.


First Nations and their Locatee citizens consult with us about the development and management of their lands.
