By adding broker’s name (agency name), or broker ID (agency) or, simply, location you can check if any insurance brokers Toronto or across Ontario is officially licensed and has his/her license in a good standing.

- Make sure that a broker has a license to sell life insurance (including Accident and Sickness)
- Make sure that the license is valid and not outdated
Should any Toronto insurance brokers, with whom you are dealing, do not have a valid life insurance license but still sell life insurance products, please contact Licensing and Inquiries department of FSCO.

Each Ontario insurance broker including insurance brokers Toronto must be licensed by RIBO (Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario), who also offers a small tool to find out if insurance brokers in Toronto and across the province are licensed by RIBO. You can conduct a search either by broker’s first or last name or also search for a brokerage name or registration number.
