IIROC is proposing amendments to IIROC Rule 2650 – Continuing Education Requirements for Approved Persons (“CE Rules”) to address feedback received following the implementation of the revised CE Rules, which became effective on January 1, 2018. IIROC is also republishing for comment the two proposed amendments to the CE Rules that were previously published in IIROC Notice 18-0019.

These consolidated proposed amendments (“Proposed Amendments”) are intended to:

  • support IIROC’s goal of modernizing and simplifying the CE program
  • eliminate transitional provisions that are no longer necessary
  • clarify IIROC’s expectations with respect to certain rules
  • respond to comments received during IIROC’s ongoing review of their CE program.

A copy of the IIROC Notice, including the text of the Proposed Amendments, is published on our website at The comment period ends on August 26, 2019.
