Taking the CELPIP for BCFSA

The British Columbia Financial Services Authority requires licensee applicants and students to demonstrate a comprehensive standard of English proficiency by taking the CELPIP General English test. BCFSA recognizes that strong language skills are essential in communicating with clients. We're proud to make the CELPIP available to BC residents across the province.

About the BCFSA

The British Columbia Financial Services Authority (BCFSA) protects the public interest by enforcing the licensing and licensee conduct requirements of the Real Estate Services Act. Find out more at bcfsa.ca

BCFSA licenses individuals and brokerages engaged in real estate sales, rental and strata property management, sets entry qualifications, investigates complaints against licensees and imposes disciplinary sanctions under the Act.


As part of its mandate to protect the public interest, BCFSA is responsible for ensuring that the interests of consumers who use the services of real estate licensees are adequately protected against wrongful actions by licensees.
