Becoming a Registered Salesperson, Broker or Brokerage

In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, RECO has implemented measures to accept documents electronically for registration, reinstatement and renewal. RECO previously required that new and reinstating registrants provide their original Canadian Criminal Record & Judicial Matters Check by letter mail. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, RECO is currently accepting electronic original Criminal Record & Judicial Matters Check documents. Electronic original Criminal Record & Judicial Matters Check can be obtained through the following websites:

In order to prevent delays in processing, and ensure the safety of RECO staff, please send applications and documentation via email or fax:

With staff working from home, RECO has a limited capacity to accept documentation by mail or courier. Sending paper documents may result in processing delays.
