  1. Determine if you're eligible

    All insurance salespersons working in Yukon must hold a current Yukon licence and renew it every year.

    Renewal period

    All insurance salesperson licences expire annually on September 30. Submit your renewal application before August 1. This will ensure we can process your application before your licence expires.

    It’s illegal to work in the new licence year before we've issued your new licence.

    Eligibility

    You're eligible to apply to renew your licence if you hold a current Yukon insurance salesperson licence.

    If you’ve had any complaints, disciplinary or criminal action against you, please note:

    • we'll assess your eligibility for registration or licensure on a case-by-case basis; and
    • you may not be approved for registration or licensing.

  2. Complete the renewal application form

    Download the renewal application form.

    Complete all sections of the form. Do not leave a section blank. You may enter "not applicable" when it’s relevant. We may return incomplete applications.

    Tips

    • Mark on the top of the form whether you're applying for:

      • a non-resident licence.
    • Choose non-resident if your home jurisdiction is outside of Yukon.
    • Sign the affidavit section in front of a notary public and then have the notary sign and witness.
