Requesting access to LEXIS

Whether you are entering your exemption applications on-line directly into LEXIS or submitting LEXIS XML files on-line through the Electronic Submission Framework (ESF), you need to be granted access to LEXIS.

To gain access, email the following information to

  1. The BCeID to be used to login to LEXIS
  2. The name, email address and telephone number associated with the login BCeID
    • To confirm the correct BCeID
  3. The company name and ministry client number for the company to be linked to the BCeID
    • Many industry users will already have a client number. It can also be used for LEXIS
    • If necessary, we can help find the ministry client number

Once the above information is processed you will receive an email notice stating your access to LEXIS is active.
