Consultation on the draft CE Guidelines indicated strong interest on the topic of continuing education. Based on the amount of feedback and questions we received, it was evident that insurance licensees and industry stakeholders wanted to be heard and provide input on this aspect of licensees’ practice requirements.

The voting members of the Insurance Council have now considered the draft CE Guidelines as well as the feedback from consultation on the guidelines.
Following deliberation, Council voted to adopt the proposed CE Guidelines. The CE Guidelines will be brought into effect June 1, 2021.
