To apply for any form of non-resident insurance licensing in BC, applicants must hold the same class and comparable level of licence in their home jurisdiction.
If the applicant's home jurisdiction does not require a licence, appropriate documentation from the governing authority must accompany the BC licence application.
Licence applications should properly reflect how the applicant will be conducting business in BC. The Insurance Council’s Code of Conduct (10.3.1) requires that licensees hold themselves out in the matter in which they are licensed.
If the applicant's home jurisdiction does not have a website where the Insurance Council may confirm their current licence status, a Certificate of Authority must accompany the BC application and be dated no more than 90 days prior to Council receiving the licence application.
If the applicant's home jurisdiction has a website where Council may confirm their current licence status and the classes of insurance authorized, a Certificate of Authority is not required.
All life and/or accident sickness insurance agent applicants must successfully complete the Ethics and Professional Practice (common law) module as part of the qualification for a licence.

Segregated Funds and Annuities
