The Insurance Council of Manitoba continues to monitor and assess developments with COVID-19. The health and safety of the public, our licensees and our staff are our priority. Council has been taking special measures to ensure that we continue to provide services and carry out our role as a regulator.
The ICM office continues to be closed to the public, however ICM is continuing all of its business functions online, by telephone and via email.
PLEASE NOTE: The vast majority of licensing transactions can be submitted and completed on ICM’s online licensing portal. Please visit your dashboard in ICM’s licensing portal regularly for additional ‘News and Bulletins’ that may relate to your licence class.
The ICM office continues to be closed to the public, however we have been conducting limited-seating exam writing since June 10th, and are writing on-site exams multiple days per week to accommodate applicants wishing to write their exam in Manitoba. Exam registrations can be made through ICM’s online exam registration system, including new exam registrations. Please visit the ICM website for further information regarding exams, or if you have specific questions, please contact our Exam Coordinator at email@example.com.
ERRORS AND OMISSIONS INSURANCE:
Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance for licence holders is a critical component to public protection. It is essential that agents and agencies continue to ensure that their E&O insurance is current and provides appropriate levels of coverage. Licensees should plan for timely completion of E&O renewals to ensure there are no gaps in coverage. Due to the changing nature of the business environment, it is strongly recommended that licensees review with their E&O provider any conditions or changes that would affect their current coverages.
