Course Requirements for Licensees Coming From Other Provinces & COVID-19

Course Requirements for Licensees Coming From Other Provinces

The timing of course requirements for licensees coming from other provinces has changed. Previously, licensees who were coming from other provinces were issued a licence and had six weeks to complete two home study courses, an agency course and a forms course. Due to the number of licensees who did not complete their course requirements within the time allotted, out of province licensees are now required to complete these courses prior to being issued a licence.

By-law Update, COVID-19 & Licence Renewals

By-law Update

The following By-law change was approved by the Board of Directors to enable the Commission to publish the names of individuals who do not renew their licence or take steps to terminate their licence. The publication of names ensures that the industry knows those individuals are no longer licensed and to cease any trading activity with them.
