Mortgage agents and brokers in Ontario, have you completed your 2020 continuing education requirement yet?
By law, all mortgage brokers and agents in Ontario must complete an approved continuing education (CE) course by March 31, 2020 before they can renew their license.
While these courses were previously regulated by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO), the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) has assumed the regulatory authority for FSCO and the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO) as of June 8, 2019.
As such, the FSCO CE credits are now regulated by FSRA.
However, Ontario mortgage agents and brokers are still required to undertake mandatory continuing education. Here is where they can do so:
- Canadian Mortgage Brokers Association – Ontario
CMBA Ontario has been approved by FSRA to provide the mandatory Continuing Education Course for Mortgage Agents and Brokers. They offer both an online and in-class option.

- Mortgage Professionals Canada
Mortgage Professionals Canada’s 2020 Ontario Continuing Education for Mortgage Agents and 2020 Ontario Continuing Education for Mortgage Brokers are also approved by FSRA for the mandatory CE credits. Courses are offered online and in-class.
