Since January 1st 2016, a certified representative from a province other than Quebec or from a Canadian territory seeking to act as a representative in the Insurance of Persons or Group insurance of Persons Sectors or one of their sector classes in Québec is exempt from :

  • the training determined by the Canadian Insurance Services Regulatory Organizations and delivered by a person or company accredited under the agreement entered into for that purpose with the Authority with the exception of the Ethics and Professional Practice (Civil Code) course;

The employer of a certified representative from a province other than Quebec or a canadian territory must submit an Application for Authorization of Probationary Period (pdf - 538 KB)This link will open in a new windowUpdated on 1st January 2019 and submit the following documents :

  • a valid Proof of Identity
  • a photocopy of the document issued by a competent authority showing that he was authorized to act while he lived outside Québec.

The authorization referred to must have been in effect in the year prior to the candidate's application for Authorization for a Probationary Period . It must also be equivalent to the representative's certificate applied for in Québec. (See the reference guide below to find out what equivalences are granted.)

  • an official document issued by the competent authority or its authorized agent confirming that the candidate passed the examination prescribed by the AMF to demonstrate that the candidate has the required competencies to comply with the legislation applicable to pursuing activities as a representative.

Reference guide

Below you will find a list, by Canadian province or territory, of the authorizations which make it easier for holders to obtain a representative's certificate issued by the AMF. The requirements to be met are also indicated for each representative's certificate.
