Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, mortgage brokers and agents should meet all of the learning objectives and outcomes that are identified below for professional practices, and private lending and investing.

Professional Practices:

1. Ensure public relations materials comply with the Mortgage Brokerages, Lenders and Administrators Act, 2006 (MBLAA)
  • Identify examples of public relations materials that comply and do not comply with the MBLAA. (Public relations materials are the top cause of complaints to FSCO. In 2014, nineteen per cent of mortgage brokering complaints were about public relations materials.)
2. Enhance the detection and prevention of mortgage fraud
  • Describe practices that mortgage brokers and agents can apply to their daily business to prevent mortgage fraud.
  • Describe what mortgage brokers and agents can do to make sure they are not being used to facilitate mortgage fraud and to identify any red flags.
3. Keep detailed records and documentation
  • Be proactive in keeping documentation and records ― including notes of conversations ― to help mortgage brokers and agents confirm they are in compliance with the MBLAA when responding to consumer complaints.
  • Submit an application to surrender your mortgage broker or agent licence, if you plan to leave the mortgage brokering industry.

Private Lending and Investing:

1. Ensure suitability in private lending
  • Learn how to ensure a borrower’s mortgage is suitable for him/her and that the borrower makes an informed decision.
2. Complete due diligence on syndicated mortgage investments
  • Learn how mortgage brokers and agents who sell syndicated mortgage investments should complete proper due diligence regarding developers, promoters, the property and other risks in syndicated mortgage investments
3. Understand the new features of the updated Investor/Lender Disclosure Statements for Brokered Transactions and the corresponding Renewal Forms
