Re-instating My Licence
To be authorized to trade in real estate, provide property management services or deal in mortgages in Alberta, an individual must be licensed with RECA and registered with an Alberta brokerage.
Registration certificates expire on September 30 each year. If you cancel your registration or allow it to expire, your licence will remain valid for three years from the last date you were registered, however without a valid registration you are not authorized to work in the industry. You can apply to re-instate your registration at any time during that three year period.
- If you missed any Re-licensing Education Program (REP) courses required for your industry sector while you were unregistered, you must complete them before you can re-instate your registration. Log into myRECA to view your outstanding REP courses and complete them.
- If you are unregistered for more than one year, you must provide a new certified criminal record check to RECA before reinstatement. You can view the status of your CCRC by clicking on the Licensing Tab within myRECA and then proceeding to the Licence Eligibility page. You must pay a re-instatement fee for the year in which you wish to reinstate. Click here for the current fee schedule.
Re-registration within the same licensing year:
- If you cancel your registration and then decide to re-instate before September 30 of the same year, it is called re-registration and you will only pay a re-registration fee. No other re-instatement requirements apply.
Not re-instating within the three year period:
- You cannot apply to re-instate your registration after the three year period expires. Your licence will be terminated and you will have to complete the pre-licensing education program for your industry sector in order to apply for a new licence and registration.
