Ontario Mortgage Agent Course (Virtual Class)


Please read the Course and Cancellation Policies as well as the Learners Code of Conduct before registering.

The Ontario Mortgage Agent Course is required by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) in order to be licensed under the Act and become a Mortgage Agent and/or Broker. For full details on becoming licensed as a mortgage agent, please visit FSRA's website.

This course is designed according to key competencies and curriculum established by the Mortgage Broker Regulator’s Council of Canada (MBRCC), which represents governments and other self-regulatory organizations that are responsible for administering mortgage brokerage legislation. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge to successfully pass the Agent licensing exam and the skills to broker a mortgage with assistance.

Individuals wanting to apply for a mortgage agent license in Ontario must complete this course and successfully pass a proctored examination either online, or at a pre-approved testing centre.

A link to the e-textbook Introduction to the Canadian Mortgage Industry, 6th Edition, will be included in your emailed receipt after completing registration. A hard copy of the textbook will be shipped to you approximately 3-5 business days after registration. Once you have completed the course, you will be invited to book your exam at a later date.

This course is offered as an intensive five-day course, or as a series of weekend sessions. If enrolled in the intensive course, please ensure to review the course content prior to the first day.

Attendance on all days is mandatory - your video camera must be on at all times with functioning audio, as per FSRA requirements.

A financial calculator is NOT required for this course.


Please make sure to read the Course and Cancellation Policies document and the Learners Code of Conduct prior to registering for the course.

IMPORTANT: The course textbook takes approximately 3-5 business days to be delivered. Should you register less than 5 business days prior to the course start date, you may not receive your textbook before the first day of class. 

This is a competency-based program focused on building the skills rather than simply the knowledge you will need to successfully provide mortgage brokerage services in Ontario.

Competency 3: Manage the Mortgage Brokerage Relationships

Competency 4: Process Mortgage Brokerage Transactions

Competency 5: Detect and Prevent Mortgage Fraud
