AIC Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (CUSPAP)

As an appraiser, it is Edjline Appraisal Services’ professional and ethical responsibility to provide an independent and unbiased opinion of the value of your property. AIC is a self-regulating body, establishing a set of ethics and standards to help appraisal company members fulfill all obligations to clients. As an AIC member, Edjline is required to engage in Continuing Professional Development activities.

We comply to AIC’s Standards also known as the Canadian Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (CUSPAP).
