Getting licensed

Real estate agents must become licensed in order to trade in real estate in Canada. As educational and regulatory requirements vary by province, make sure you find out what is required in your province.

To become a licensed real estate agent, you must:

1. Successfully complete the courses through your provincial real estate association or council.
2. Submit an application to your provincial licensing body, along with sponsorship from a licensed real estate broker (essentially an offer of employment).
3. Maintain your license by completing additional courses as required by the province.
