Recognizing the burden the normal reporting system (Form 1242) would place on insurers and adjusters, the Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) has developed an abbreviated insurance loss system to capture fire loss data associated with the Fort McMurray fires. The OFC has developed a mapping solution that will allow companies to add the total fire loss and the loss payable by insurers. No other information will be required. What investigators collected in the mapping tool are direct fire losses. We created a simplified form so that adjusters can go in afterward and enter the claim amount, payout and totals. Look up the claimant’s address and you can edit each investigation to complete the loss report.
QUESTION: As a Manitoba Adjuster, if I have completed a CE course in the past, but have taken it again this year, can I claim this towards my CE requirement?

CIPR is short for Canadian Insurance Participant Registry. The Canadian Insurance Participant Registry (CIPR) provides a single, secure, self-serve service where regulated parties can maintain, and control access to, their personal information. All registrants receive a unique identifier called their CIPR # which can be used to identify them to all signatories to the Registry including insurance regulators in all jurisdictions across the country, and eventually, participating insurers, LLQP providers, continuing education providers, etc. Additionally, signatories have the option of delegating participant authentication to the Registry so registrants can use a single id and password to gain access to regulator sites across the country.
