Payment Policy

The Insurance Council is permitted to collect and retain fees per Insurance Council Rule 5(1). The Insurance Council’s application fee is non-refundable. Where an application has been made and is subsequently withdrawn, denied or not proceeded with, the application will be closed and only the provincial government fee (either $25.00 or $50.00) will be refunded. Where an application has been made and is subsequently approved and a corresponding licence has been generated, no monies will be refunded in any and all cases (e.g., including but not limited to the case where a licence is later revoked by the Insurance Council or voluntarily closed by the licensee).  All fees related to annual licence renewals (including any late fees), exams, licence amendments, insurer assessments, course accreditation, and continuing education courses are similarly non-refundable once payment has been made.
In the event that the Insurance Council of British Columbia incurs bank service fees for returned cheque payments or credit card chargebacks, these service fees will be assessed to the relevant applicant/licensee/examinee.
