For over 100 years, the Insurance Institute of Canada has been educating property and casualty insurance professionals with designation programs including the Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) and Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP). The Insurance Institute is a not-for-profit organization with more than 39,000 members across Canada – including more than 17,000 graduates who have earned the CIP or FCIP designations. The comprehensive education included in these designation programs includes the technical knowledge used by underwriters for policy writing, by brokers for coverage advice, and by adjusters when helping consumers in the aftermath of an event.The CIP and FCIP designations are earned by insurance professionals committed to customer needs, to service excellence and to continually updating their skills and knowledge to ensure that consumers, like you, receive the most informed, current advice possible.To learn more, visit
