About Mortgage Broker: if you're looking for Hamilton mortgages or Burlington mortgages or anywhere in Ontario -- Marie Copeland is a Hamilton Mortgage Broker, Financial Services Underwriter (FSU) and owner of Axcess Mortgage and Loans Financing Co.

There are various qualifications for arranging mortgages, here is a quick overview:

It's a top Post-Diploma in the mortgage industry in Ontario, Canada, in my case a 5 year educational process. This individual is licensed to operate a mortgage brokerage business and supervise Brokers and Agents;
  • Mortgage Broker - an individual who has been in the industry of arranging mortgages for more than two years under the supervision of another Broker and has completed some courses to upgrade their knowledge - this individual can set up their own mortgage brokerage business that includes other Brokers and can supervise Agents;
  • Mortgage Agent - an individual who completed a basic mortgage licensing course and has obtained a license to arrange mortgages under the supervision of a Mortgage Broker.

Professional associations CAAMP and IMBA continue to make efforts to upgrade the industry standards for those practicing in the field, by offering various courses. One of these is an AMP designation heavily marketed and promoted by the mortgage broker professional association CAAMP - it  can be obtained by paying an annual fee to the association and completing some seminars, lender webinars or attending other residential lender events, etc.

There is also an Administrator license for those who administer private, MIC mortgages.
