Mythbuster of the Month: Disciplinary action from the Commission, including fines, has no impact on me or my licence after it has been fulfilled.

Disciplinary action does not disappear from our records after any sanctions, penalties, or education requirements are fulfilled by the licensee. A discipline history remains on file for three to five years, depending on the severity of the charges, and may be provided to members of the public or licensees (including brokers) upon request. For licensees who wish to obtain a real estate licence in another province, a discipline history forms part of the licensing application.

Ultimately, being compliant with the Real Estate Trading Act, its Regulations, the Commission Bylaw and Commission Policies is the best way to avoid disciplinary action. For full details on the publication of disciplinary decisions, see Commission Bylaw 839.
