Guided Case Studies

The Real Estate Division administers the Guided Case Studies (formerly Demonstration Reports) required for the Appraisal Institute of Canada's CRA and AACI designations. The writing of guided case studies tests the candidate's ability to apply appraisal theory in a practical situation.

The AIC establishes and actively maintains the content, rigour and evaluation of the guided case studies. The tutors and graders for the guided case studies are selected from a pool of experienced AACI designated members representing a variety of provinces across Canada. Wherever possible candidates are assigned a tutor from their own province.

Candidates should review the guided case studies information found in the links below.
