Canadian Insurance Services Regulatory Organizations

General Insurance Licensing Qualification Review (GILQR) Committee


The mandate of the GILQR Committee is to:

  • Review licensing education requirements for general insurance agents and brokers across Canada and make recommendations regarding a harmonized approach; and
  • Assess how the recommendations would impact licensing in each jurisdiction if implemented.

Curricula and examinations specific to claims adjuster licensing, which could be impacted by the recommendations, are not considered part of the mandate.

The Committee does not intend to assess current licensing frameworks but will consider these when making recommendations.

The Committee expects to present its recommendations to CISRO in spring 2019.
