Original criminal record checks must accompany first applications for licensing that are received
The requirement to provide a criminal record applies to individuals applying for a general, life, A&S or adjuster insurance licence, where:
- the person has never previously held a licence with Council; OR
- the person has not held a general, life, A&S or adjuster licence with Council within the past 5 years.
Individuals applying for a Restricted Travel Agent licence are not required to obtain criminal record checks.
It is important to note:
- Criminal Record Checks provided to Council must be dated within 90 days of the date Council receives the licence application;
- you must have your Criminal Record Check completed by the municipal police or RCMP detachment where you live;
- contact the police agency before attending its office to confirm hours of operation, fees and method of payment. Council does not have this information; and
- when completing your licence application, ensure you read the application instructions carefully, as you still have to disclose your criminal record and details
on the application form.
