Insurance Agents

(NOC 6231)


These comments apply to the career group Insurance and Real Estate Sales Occupations and Buyers, which includes Insurance Agents and Brokers.

Over the next few years, the increasing use of the Internet by the public should offset the most part of the effects of growth in the insurance market. Consequently, the number of insurance agents and brokers should remain fairly stable.

The higher qualifications required for positions as insurance agents and brokers (NOC 6231), adjusters (NOC 1233) and insurers (NOC 1234) mean that the labour market status of graduates in insurance consulting and financial services is usually excellent.
