Accident and Sickness Insurance

Title : Accident and Sickness Insurance Representative

A representative authorized to act in the Accident and Sickness Insurance sector class may only offer accident and sickness insurance products and advisory services, excluding, whether accessory or not, any other insurance of persons product, even when offered as a rider to a sickness or accident insurance contract.

How to obtain a representative’s certificate

Step 1: Satisfy the minimum qualifications

Persons wishing to obtain an Accident and Sickness Insurance representative’s certificate must successfully complete the specialized training of the Life Licence Qualification Program (LLQP) offered by an AMF-accredited provider. The course is valid one year and comprises the following two modules:

  • Accident and Sickness Insurance

Several course providers offer the LLQP training. You can obtain the contact information of the AMF-accredited providers below.

Course providers are responsible for distributing the exam preparation material. To obtain this material, you must first register with the Canadian Insurance Participant Registry (CIPR) and give your number to the Course provider.
