How do we work?

What are we doing?


When your application arrives at the BCAA, it will be subject to a desk review by a Licensing officer. As soon as your file is being processed, you will receive an invitation to pay by email. After a positive evaluation of your application and the payment received, your license will be processed, signed and shipped.

We will contact you by phone or email if we have questions about your request. We will be able to keep your application on hold while the additional conditions are met.


Processing time


We try to process all requests within 20 business days of receipt of all required information, including all necessary documentation and payment. However, some requests may take longer.

Please note that we are currently receiving an unusually high volume of requests and therefore cannot process licenses within 20 business days. We process requests as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience.
