How to Renew A Licence
To begin a renewal application, applicants must use the Builder Portal. The Builder Portal is an online service for builders and vendors to manage and submit forms electronically and pay fees. The HCRA is committed to making the application process fair and efficient, and will only be accepting renewal applications, supporting documents and fee payments through the Builder Portal. Those unable to apply through the Builder Portal and requiring an accommodation should contact the HCRA Licensing and Customer Service Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Part of the application renewal is a requirement to truthfully attest to additional details provided in the application such as a listing of all interested persons associated with the application, information about past conduct and criminal history, and compliance with laws. Failure to complete an honest attestation will impact the Registrar’s assessment of the applicant’s honesty and integrity.
An applicant may be eligible for a fast track renewal, which allows for a more streamlined and accelerated process. Fast track eligibility is determined based on the HCRA’s risk-based criteria.
As part of the renewal application process, payment of a renewal fee of $500 is required. The HCRA reviews the renewal application after payment has been received. If payment is not received within 10 business days, the application for renewal will be automatically treated as withdrawn.
