If you want to become a registered salesperson or broker, you must meet all of the requirements for registration under the Trust in Real Estate Services Act, 2002 (TRESA).
You must be a least 18 years of age to apply.
When assessing suitability for registration, RECO considers whether:
- the applicant can reasonably be expected to be financially responsible in the conduct of business;
- the applicant will carry on business in accordance with law and with integrity and honesty;
- the applicant has made any false statement in an application for registration;
- the applicant has carried on or is carrying on activities that are, or will be, if the applicant is registered, in contravention of the legislation;
- the applicant is in breach of a condition of the registration;
- the applicant meets all requirements for registration;
- the applicant has complied with any request for information made by the registrar; and
- granting the registration would be contrary to the public interest.
If you are concerned your past conduct might prevent you from becoming registered (for example, a criminal record, charges, or discipline history with another regulatory body), you can read the Registration Policy: Applicant/Registrant Criminal History to help you self-assess your eligibility.
