Our Responsibility

We take our role and responsibility to heart. We provide independent and objective services and utilize experienced and accredited professionals designated by the Appraisal Institute of Canada with the CRA and AACI designations. Our appraisals are unbiased and are a completely objective opinion of value.

Current Market Information.

Our reports utilize the most current and up to date market information to provide you with accurate and up to date value conclusions that you can rely on. This requires that we maintain membership in multiple real estate boards and subscribe to cutting edge information sources.

Local knowledge and Proven Valuation Experience.

Our staff is local, we live in the communities we service and with that comes local knowledge. Our appraisers also bring with them extensive experience and professional designations from the Appraisal Institute of Canada.

Standards of Practice.

With professionally designated appraisers come high levels of professional Standards. Accredited members adhere to formal standards established the Appraisal Institute of Canada (The Canadian Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice). The high standards required in every report has helped the Appraisal Institute of Canada to be recognized as the nation’s pre-eminent appraisal authority. All of our appraisal staff are members of the Appraisal Institute of Canada.

Self-Regulation.

Aside from four provinces, there is no licensing for real estate appraisers in Canada. This means that strong self regulation within the industry must be undertaken. This has been a key for the members of the Appraisal Institute of Canada. Accredited Appraisers must adhere to strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. AIC members who fail to respect the AIC, the Code and the Standards run the real risk of being called to appear in front of an AIC national committee and face discipline up to expulsion.

Accepted Reports.

Our reports are widely accepted by all of the major financial institutions, trust companies and credit unions. Our reports have been accepted by various levels of the court system, municipal, provincial and national government bodies and ministries.

Tradition.

Wm. S. Jackson & Associates Ltd. was formed in 1980 and is celebrating 35 years of service in 2015. Our staff have extensive experience throughout the region. The Appraisal Institute of Canada, formed in 1938, with over 75 years of commitment, is the pre-eminent Canadian organization representing real estate valuation professionals nationwide and serving the public interest.
