You may transfer your licence to another brokerage at any time. The cost of transferring your licence during the two-year licence period is $250. If you change brokerages at the time of licence renewal, there is no additional cost.
Individuals who are currently licensed and who wish to change employing brokerages or who have been unlicensed for less than 90 days within a licence period should follow these steps:
Complete an Application for Representative, Associate Broker or Managing Broker Licence form and submit it to RECBC.
In Part A of the application form check off the box entitled “Reinstatement applicant (TRANSFER) (currently licensed or inoperative for less than 90 days).”
Make sure you understand all the information that is required as part of the Application for Representative, Associate or Managing Broker Licence form.
Submit the appropriate fee ($250). The payment may be made by cheque or credit card using the credit card authorization form.
If you are currently licensed, your previous managing broker will be notified to surrender your licence in the RECBC portal — will open in a new tab.
Managing brokers who have been notified to surrender a licence can find more information in our guide:
