2024 CPE Deadline: June 15

If you have already completed the 2023-2024 CPE, you can disregard the rest of this email.

Licensees are required to complete the CPE, Discovering Property Facts, which is available online via the NSAR Learning Platform. The deadline is June 15, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. There are currently still 1,596 licensees who have not completed the course. 

All licensees who fail to complete their mandatory CPE before the deadline will have their licences terminate effective 12:00 a.m. on July 1, 2024. The course will be unavailable from June 16 - July 11. If you let your licence terminate, you must immediately cease all trading activities, including taking down signage, advertising, and social media. To have your licence reinstated after the deadline has passed, you must complete the course, apply to have your licence reinstated, pay the renewal fee, and be issued a licence, at which point you may resume trading activity.
