Defining Mortgage Brokerage
A mortgage brokerage in Ontario is a business licensed through the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FCSO), an arms-length agency of the Ministry of Finance, that has at least one broker known as the “Principal Broker”. This broker will often have a team of mortgage agents and brokers working alongside them for which they oversee with regards to legislative compliance. All mortgage agents/brokers must also be individually licensed with the FSCO in order to broker mortgages, requiring an educational course(s) and government-issued examination, as well as many comprehensive background checks. Agents/brokers are considered self-employed but in order for their license to be valid, they must be registered with a brokerage.
