Please find below a statement from Insurance Brokers Association of Saskatchewan (IBAS) CEO Derek Lothian:
Over the past few days, IBAS has received several inquiries regarding education and licensing pathways for insurance brokers in Saskatchewan — specifically, with respect to Mr. Scheer’s time in the province’s insurance industry.
It is our understanding there has been a formal complaint issued to the General Insurance Council of Saskatchewan (GICS), which provides licensing and regulatory oversight to insurance brokers. Accordingly, with that file under review, it would be inappropriate for IBAS to comment at this time, and further questions on the matter should be directed to GICS officials.
IBAS can confirm, however, that Mr. Scheer did complete an accredited course with IBAS that would form part of the current eligibility requirements for licensing. The following is a summary of the insurance broker education and licensing framework in Saskatchewan:
