Accident and Sickness Insurance Agent

An Accident and Sickness Insurance Licence may be issued to residents and non-residents who wish to carry on the business of an insurance agent for accident and sickness insurance in New Brunswick. This applies to all types of selling, whether in person, in writing, by telephone or online.

Residents

Applicants for a Resident Accident and Sickness Insurance Agent Licence must have completed the Accident and Sickness component of the Life Licence Qualifying Program (LLQP). The LLQP provides for a mandatory pre-licensing training course, a certification exam and a provincial licensing examination. To obtain a licence, you must successfully complete an LLQP course from a certified course provider and pass the provincial LLQP exam. See course providers.

Non-residents

Applicants for a Non-Resident Accident and Sickness Insurance Agent License must provide a Certificate of Authority or Certificate of Status from their home jurisdiction that certifies that the applicant is currently licensed to carry on the business of such an agent in that jurisdiction and that the agent is in good standing. This certificate must be an original and no older than 60 days.

For non-residents from Quebec, all first-time applicants must also provide proof that the Ethics and Professional Practice (within the context of Common Law) 112 exam has been completed. The Ethics and Professional Practice (within the context of civil law) 111 does not fulfill this requirement.
