Identification required for first-time licensing
When recruiting, it is important to make sure that applicants for first-time licensing have the identification documents they require to obtain a licence.

Canadian-born applicants:

  • Birth certificate, and
  • Government issued photo ID (driver’s licence/passport)

Internationally-born applicants:

  • Citizenship card or certificate, or
  • Permanent resident card, or
  • Valid work visa, and
  • Government issued photo ID (driver’s licence/ passport)

Being able to legally work in Canada is a requirement of being licensed. Licensees with work visas must ensure the visa documentation provided to the Commission remains current. Provide a copy of the renewed/extended work visa to the Commission before the old work visa expires. Otherwise your real estate licence will expire on the same day as the work visa the Commission has on file.
