Government of New Brunswick

Overview

Any person, whether a resident of the Province or not, who carries on the business of an insurance agent for life insurance or life and accident and sickness insurance in New Brunswick must have a valid licence. This applies to all types of selling, whether in person, in writing, or by telephone.

Eligibility

On July 15, 2003, the Life Licensing Qualification Program (LLQP) became mandatory for entry-level resident life agents or life and accident and sickness agents to obtain a licence in the Province. The LLQP includes a pre-licensing course provided by approved course providers. Residents wishing to become life agents must follow a course of study, pass a certification exam given by the provider, and pass a provincial exam (see the Life Insurance Agent Licensing Regulation - Insurance Act regulation 2003-36 for more information)

Non-resident life insurance agents or life and accident and sickness insurance agents who are licensed in another province or territory of Canada or a state of the United States of America may apply for a licence to act as a life insurance agent or a life and accident and sickness insurance agent in the Province. A Certificate of Authority from their home jurisdiction confirming that the applicant is licensed and in good standing must accompany their application.

Criminal record checks are by done by the New Brunswick insurance regulator on new applicants or applicants who previously held a license but two years have lapsed since their last held license.
