Training and Learning

Notice: The Government of Canada has approved changes to the CDIC Act to modernize and enhance CDIC deposit protection. These changes will be reflected on this website when they take effect. Until then, current coverage rules apply.


Welcome to the CDIC financial community training and learning page. Here you will find practical information on CDIC and existing deposit protection rules.

For financial professionals, we have produced a free webinar titled Understanding CDIC Coverage of Brokered Deposits. This presentation is focused on the following key areas of deposit coverage requirements:

  • How CDIC’s coverage rules for trusts apply to deposits made by brokers
  • What disclosure is required to ensure clients’ deposits are protected by CDIC
  • How CDIC aggregates eligible deposits in a failure

The webinar is accredited by The Institute and IIROC, and it will earn you one continuing education credit. Upon successful completion of the one–hour webinar, you will be issued a certificate for your records.

We have also created a fun, free, self-directed training game called the CDIC Financial Professional Trivia Challenge. This training game is accredited by The Institute, IIROC, CSF, and IQPF and you will earn one continuing education credit upon completion. Similar to the webinar, you will be issued a certificate for your records once the game is completed.

For member financial institution employees, we have the Insurance Endurance Training Game, designed to equip you with important information that may help you better serve your clients.
