The Appraisal Institute of Canada (AIC) is the premier national association for real estate valuation professionals. AIC assures high standards in the appraisal profession through the granting of the Canadian Residential Appraiser (CRA, P.App) and the Accredited Appraiser Canadian Institute (AACI, P.App) designations.
Since 1998, the UBC Real Estate Division has been given the responsibility for administering the courses comprising the Appraisal Institute of Canada’s educational program. The AIC program is designed for highly-motivated people seeking to join the real property valuation profession as well as for valuation practitioners already employed in the industry who want to upgrade their education. Successful completion of these courses also earns student degree credits toward UBC’S Bachelor of Business in Real Estate Program (BBRE).
