Why life insurance?


Life insurance is a staple product in Canada, with 29 million people currently covered by some form of insurance. Canada also has a consistently growing population, with the demand for insurance steadily increasing. But the insurance industry is suffering a talent shortage and new agents are needed as the majority of existing agents get closer to retirement age.

How fast can I complete the course (HLLQP) and licensing exams?
The Harmonized Life License Qualification Program (HLLQP) can be completed in as little as one week (2-3 weeks is more common). The licensing exams can all be done in 1 (one) day. Therefore, the HLLQP and the licensing exams can be completed in as little as 3-4 weeks from initial registration.
Are there a lot of life insurance companies that are hiring?
The industry needs new advisors as existing agents approach retirement age! This means there are currently many companies that are seeking new agents. We recommend using the FREE REMIC Job Bank (coming 2022) where there are dozens of companies looking for new agents.
How much can I earn as an insurance agent?
Life insurance agents are paid a commission by the life insurance provider. This commission/fee is based on a percentage of the policy premium so your earning potential is only limited by the number of deals you do. Becoming a life insurance agent is a fairly inexpensive industry to get into, while offering the potential benefit of earning you a six figure income much more quickly when compared to other careers with the same income potential.
