Professional Development Sessions

Last fall, Mortgage Professionals Canada & ONMICA (Ontario Mortgage Investment Companies Association) hosted an exclusive, sold out MIC* session and trade show attended by over 400 mortgage agents and brokers and featured 21 Mortgage Investment Entities.

The year, successful MIC events were held in Ottawa and May which have now come to a close.

MICs (Mortgage Investment Corporations) have become a successful provider of alternative lending for mortgage agents. However, not all MICs are the same. These events provided attendees with a thorough understanding of the array of products offered by MICs to suit your client’s needs.
