To request to have your program/presentation accredited against the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) and/or the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) CE guidelines, please continue to fill out Step 1 and 2 of the application and then proceed to Step 3. Although The Institute is not charging any extra fees for this, the MFDA charges education providers a fee of $150 when they upload a course onto the MFDA's CE Reporting and Tracking System (CERTS).
