BANKER TO BROKERWith you every step of the way


This course is the required first step to becoming a licensed mortgage agent and then a mortgage broker in Ontario. This course is approved by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA previously FSCO).

Mortgage agent courses can be taken a day a week in class over a few weeks with a final Friday or Saturday exam, or taken at your own pace online with a final Friday or Saturday exam. In class you will receive the benefit of an experienced instructor and class discussion with other participants.

The online course takes roughly 40 hours to complete and must be completed within 6 months of registering. The course is based on the textbook Introduction to the Canadian Mortgage Industry. The course prices range between $298 - $425.

The Superintendent has approved the following mortgage agent education programs for licensing purposes. Programs are provided commercially, and tuition fees are set by each program provider.

All include a course of study followed by a final examination
