Damage Insurance is…

  • Automobile Insurance
  • Home Insurance
  • Commercial Insurance
  • Liability Insurance
  • Professional Liability Insurance
  • Event Insurance (including film set insurance, for example)
  • Farming Insurance (There are 30,000 farms in Quebec!)
  • Boat, Snowmobile, Aircraft Insurance and other

Each of us owns property that is important: a car, house, apartment, motorcycle, computer, or other belongings. The sole purpose of Damage Insurance is to protect these. Theft, fire, accident, flooding are some of the disasters that can impact one’s life or business. Personal Damage Insurance protects one’s most valuable investments, i.e., home and automobile. Business Damage Insurance (Quebec is home to more than 200,000 SMEs) covers equipment breakdown whose consequences on business sustainability could be catastrophic. The objective of this program is to provide participants with the necessary competencies to work in the field in the province of Québec in the roles of Agent, Broker, Underwriter and Claims Adjuster. John Abbott  graduates have found jobs in this field upon graduation at Aviva Canada, Allstate Insurance, KBD Insurance Broker and La Capitale Assurances, to name a few. This AEC is the first step in the process after which additional training, exams and certification with the “Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF)” are required.
