2020–2021 Licence Renewal Period


The renewal period is now open for all real estate, mortgage, appraisers, and property management professionals.

Renewal applications must be completed and submitted through myRECA by September 30, 2020.

Brokers must renew the brokerage licence through the My Brokerage tab in myRECA before associates and associate brokers in the brokerage are able to renew.

For more information, review the tutorial for renewing a brokerage within myRECA.

Associates and associate brokers can begin renewing once their broker has renewed the licence of the brokerage, by clicking the Renew button under the Licensing tab in myRECA.

For more information, review the tutorial for renewing an associate or associate broker within myRECA.

Paying for your licence renewal

Renewal fees are due at the time of renewal and can be paid online through myRECA using Visa, Visa Debit, and MasterCard.

Industry professionals who are unable to pay their renewal online can send a cheque, bank draft, or money order to RECA, ensuring that the payment:

  1. is made payable to the Real Estate Council of Alberta
  2. includes the name of the brokerage or industry professional—as it appears on their licence—for whom payment is being made
  3. is received by RECA by 2:00 pm on September 30, 2020

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, RECA will not be accepting hand-delivered cash nor offline payments at the office for the 2020-2021 licence year.

Associates and Associate Brokers

If an associate or associate broker is unable to pay their renewal online or by cheque, bank draft or money order, they should try to arrange with their broker/brokerage to pay their renewal on their behalf.

Other payment options

If none of the options listed above are possible, please contact RECA.


Receipts for renewal fees can only be accessed by the individual or brokerage that made the payment.
