To become a life insurance agent in the Atlantic provinces, you need to complete the LLQP program in Nova Scotia. LLQP stands for Life License Qualification Program and is the standard for life insurance agents and accident & sickness insurance agents across Canada.
To get your life insurance license, you need to complete all 4 exam modules.
The LLQP program in Nova Scotia is made up of 4 modules:
- Life Insurance
- Accident & Sickness Insurance
- Segregated Funds & Annuities
- Ethics & Professional Practice
To become a fully fledged life insurance agent in Nova Scotia, you need to complete all 4 modules of the program and pass all 4 exams. If you only want to sell accident & sickness products, then you only need to pass 2 modules: #2 & #4 above.
Once you get your LLQP license, it is valid across all Canadian provinces except for Quebec. To become LLQP certified in Quebec, you need to take a separate Ethics & Professional Practice module based on the unique legal system they have in that province.
You can find more information on the LLQP exams elsewhere on our website.
