    How to apply for a Mortgage Broker Licence

    Mortgage brokers are individuals that broker mortgages on behalf of a licensed mortgage brokerage. Mortgage broker applicants need to meet both education and experience requirements, or be exempt from these requirements, and be found suitable for licensing.

    Are you exempt from the education and experience requirement?

    Under section 4.1 of The Mortgage Brokerage and Mortgage Administrators Regulations, an individual is exempt from the mortgage broker education and experience requirements if they have an authorization as any of the following:

    • British Columbia – Designated Individual
    • Alberta – Mortgage Broker
    • Manitoba – Authorized Official
    • Ontario – Mortgage Broker
    • Québec – Mortgage Broker Qualified to Manage an Agency or
    • Québec – Fully Qualified Real Estate Broker Qualified to Manage an Agency
    • New Brunswick - Mortgage Broker
       

    Individuals who do not hold one of the above authorizations are not exempted from the mortgage broker education and experience requirements, and need to demonstrate they meet the education and experience requirements when they apply for a licence. These individuals need to complete the mortgage broker licence kit – if licensed in another jurisdiction.

    Before submitting an application

    Within the mortgage broker application you are required to attest that you are familiar with The Mortgage Brokerage and Mortgage Administrators Act and will comply with it and its regulations. In addition to knowing the information in the legislation and what is provided on the FCAA website, it is recommended that you contact the brokerage under which you are applying for guidance in meeting this requirement.

    How to apply

    If you are seeking a licence as a mortgage broker, you must:

    • submit a completed application form;
    • remit the $250 initial review fee;
    • remit the $400 annual fee (note: this fee will be refunded if your application is refused); and
    • provide the required supporting information, including a completed criminal record check dated within 3 months of the date of application.

    If your application is approved and you are licensed as a mortgage broker, you will need to comply with the requirements applicable to licensees.
     

    How to apply for a mortgage associate licence

    Mortgage associates are individuals that broker mortgages on behalf of a licensed mortgage brokerage. Mortgage associate applicants need to meet education requirements, or be exempt from this requirement, and be found suitable for licensing.
