To be eligible to reinstate, any missed annual continuing professional education (CPE) must be completed prior to applying. This email address is being protected from spambots.

If the licence has been terminated for over 90 days, they must also obtain a current criminal records check by a provider approved by the Commission. The Commission does not accept electronic criminal records check services such as Mybackcheck.com.

Licensees may apply to reinstate their licence with a new brokerage by completing the Reinstatement of Licence form and providing it to the Commission. This form must be signed by the broker of the brokerage with which the licensee is reinstating.

Licensees choosing to reinstate with a brokerage that practices a different agency model from that of the brokerage they terminated from (i.e. common law agency to designated agency or vice versa) must complete the agency course pertaining to their new brokerage within thirty days of reinstating their licence. Contact the Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS® to register for a course.
