Canadian University and College Programs

These full-time programs are designed to make you job-ready with the knowledge and skills essential for positions in the property and casualty insurance industry in Canada. The Insurance and Risk Management programs listed here integrate business studies with industry-specific courses. Business topics include: management, finance, communications and accounting -- along with specialized courses in insurance principles, underwriting and claims.

These programs work closely with the insurance industry to prepare a new generation of insurance professionals. Students have the opportunity to earn credits towards the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation from the Insurance Institute of Canada and the Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation from the Global Risk Management Institute, Inc. (GRMI) – essential designations for insurance professionals interested in advancing their careers as brokers/agents, risk managers/analysts, underwriters, loss adjusters or loss prevention inspectors.

Placement rates from these full-time programs are high (90-100% for successful graduates). Job opportunities are plentiful. And demand for candidates with insurance knowledge will continue to grow: According to the Insurance Institute of Canada's report "A Demographic Analysis of the P & C Insurance Industry", 28% of the industry's current labour force could retire before 2022, with the largest proportion exiting before 2017, and for management positions this number could be as high as 43%.

For part-time programs in insurance (licensing, certifications and earning the CIP designation), check out these continuing education offerings and The Insurance Institute of Canada for the offerings at an Institute near you.
