    Appointment Matching

    Buyers and Sellers submit requests indicating who they would like to meet with, and assign a priority to each request. Appointment requests received via the online system by the deadline for submission (April 30, 2023) are processed by computer-generated match-making according to the following priorities:

    1. Buyers and TIAC Members who mutually seek appointments create a “perfect match”.
    2. Buyers and other Sellers who mutually seek appointments create a “perfect match”.
    3. Appointments requested by Buyers.
    4. Appointments requested by Sellers

    Manual Appointment Requests

    On May 8, 2023, the match-making process is completed and manual appointments will open for Delegates to fill any remaining open slots.

    Delegates can add, modify or cancel appointments through their MyRVC Portal or the Rendez-vous Canada mobile app. To maximize the time for all Buyers and Sellers, delegates who are unable to keep a scheduled appointment for any reason are requested to cancel as far in advance as possible to allow time to rebook appointments.
