Important Deadline Reminders for CPE & Licence Renewals

If you have already completed the online course, Hot Market Topics, and renewed your licence(s), you can disregard the rest of this email.

Reminder that all licensees who fail to complete their mandatory CPE and/or renew their licence before the deadlines will have their licences terminate effective 12:00 am on July 1, 2023. 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 apply to have your licence reinstated, pay the renewal fee, and be issued a licence, at which point you may resume trading activity.

Online Licence Renewals: Friday, June 30

The deadline for online licensing renewals is June 30, 2023. 835 licensees and 52 brokerages still need to complete their renewals and have been sent weekly reminder emails since renewals opened on May 10. 

Brokers will be responsible for renewing the brokerage licence, audit fees, any branch office licences, their broker licence, and, if applicable, their approved sales corporation licence. Brokers can use the online portal to look up their own licensees to confirm they have renewed their licence.

All other licensees are responsible for renewing their real estate licence and, if applicable, their approved sales corporation licence. To verify if you have completed your licence renewal, you can check the licensee portal.

If you need help, the Licence Renewal Resource page is available with video tutorials, a user manual, and important information about payment methods and deadlines.
