    since the de-mutualization of insurance companies in canada, Many insurance company close they services center, were agents could trained and reciveve at least a supervision, and financing. insurance agent today have to do the selling , learning, take the expenses, and deal with managing general agent.Not to many left in canada. those mga, who inherrited the service asset of mostly all companies are paid by carriers, Mga are ex Vice P resident , or administration people from the original friends of friends in the industy.than bank start selling and buying insurance companies, credit union and caisse populaire offering wealth management ,and specialize retirement planning ,but with the caisse populaire insurance company only.so the independant agents have to sell in his carrer and have the local banks, caisse populaire ,credit union ,even charttered accounting fims to compete with.the new regulators are eying the base commisssions for advisors travelling day and night to offer clients services of their needs,solution,planning. I am still with advocis canada, but many chapters are now closed, and cannot communicate in french .So those who are the IN of this industry have it all.and the lonely independant 70% of the work force as it very hard. thanks to our federal politicians amd provincials. AH! canadian tire sells insurance, sears, sobeys,anyone company that is in tire ,food, ect. have a good carreer,same carriers provide the risk for them.philippe
