An order that is made regarding a licence holder reflects a situation at a particular point in time. The status of a licence holder can change. Readers should check the current status of a person's or entity's licence on the Licensing Link section of FSCO's website. Readers may also wish to contact the person or entity directly to get additional information or clarification about the events that resulted in the order.

These bulletins may include forms that are no longer up-to-date or accurate. Readers should visit the forms section of the FSCO website, to ensure they are using the most recent version of a FSCO form.

As part of the implementation of a harmonized LLQP by Canadian insurance regulators in January, 2016, Ontario and several other Canadian jurisdictions allowed LLQP examination candidates the choice of scoring of the examination on a modular or a compensatory basis. This option was offered to students as a transitional measure to the modular examination.
Implementation of the 2016 LLQP has been an unqualified success. I would like to thank all life insurance companies, course providers and other service providers for their efforts throughout this transition.  
The compensatory marking option will end in Ontario and other jurisdictions on November 7, 2016. Candidates who write the LLQP examination on or before November 6, 2016 will continue to have the option of either compensatory or modular marking when they book the examination.  
If you have questions about scheduling, marking or administration of the LLQP examination in Ontario, please contact Ontario’s examination administrator, Durham College [New Window].
