FP Canada recognized by MFDA as a Third Party Accreditor

The Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada is pleased to announce the recognition of FP Canada as a Third Party Accreditor for the MFDA Continuing Education Program (CE Program) which will come into effect on December 1, 2021.

“The MFDA CE Program is designed to further strengthen and harmonize the proficiency and professionalism of mutual fund advisors across Canada with the ultimate goal of enhancing the quality of advice provided to investors,” said Mark Gordon, President and CEO of the MFDA.

In its application for recognition, FP Canada has demonstrated it is in compliance with the requirements under MFDA Policy No. 9. By recognizing FP Canada, it is able to accredit CE activities for the MFDA CE Program. By recognizing Third Party Accreditors, the MFDA is providing flexibility and choice, which can reduce duplication with other CE programs, while maintaining high standards of accreditation.

Additional resources on accreditation and the MFDA CE Program can be found on the Continuing Education section of the MFDA website. Stakeholders are encouraged to review these resources and to contact MFDA staff at ce@mfda.ca should they require additional assistance.
