Your Career

More Canadians are looking for help with managing their money, which means greater opportunities for you to build a progressive and profitable career in the growing financial services sector.
A career in financial services could include assisting clients in obtaining loans or mortgages; advising clients on investments, retirement planning or risk management; or analyzing clients’ financial situations and needs and helping them develop plans to reach their goals. Your knowledge in financial planning and investing, and your passion for helping people achieve financial security, will make you a trusted resource among people seeking smart and sound advice about investing their money.
Your career in Canada’s active financial sector can take many different paths, including as a personal banking officer with a Canadian bank; investment advisor or broker’s assistant with an investment brokerage; financial advisor with a financial planning or insurance firm; or client service representative for a mutual fund company.

Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition

Our practical program curriculum will prepare you to obtain a number of the accreditations required in the financial services industry, including
the Canadian Securities Course (CSC) and Life Insurance (LLQP) licenses.

Additionally, banking-specific courses allow you to pursue many specialty designations, including Professional Financial Planning (PFP) and Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI). Upon successful completion of the CSC and PFP, you may take the exam to acquire the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation of the Financial Planning Standards Council.

Our Industry Partnerships

Our advisory committee provides productive and meaningful ties with the financial services sector. Regular committee input and review of our curriculum ensures our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.

Work Placement

A 150-hour (minimum) work placement will give you valuable practical industry experience and preparation for immediate employment. You’ll
find your own placement under the guidance of the program co-ordinator, and take career management workshops to develop effective job search skills.
