Chief Compliance Officer (CCO)

Looking to guide an exciting, aggressively growing Canadian-based InsureTech (Canada, US and beyond)

Who we are:

At Specialty Life Insurance (SLi), we pride ourselves on being one of the largest and most unique Canadian independently owned Third Party Administrators in the insurance industry. We develop, market, distribute, and administer a comprehensive line of life insurance related products that have helped Canadians with their financial and life planning needs for over 11 years. Our team of highly motivated and knowledgeable professionals have proudly helped protect consumers since inception and have been preparing our company for explosive growth over the coming months and years – AND we’re looking for a dynamic CCO to help us along the way.


About the role:

Ensure that within its chosen markets (Canada, now in US, and soon to be Europe) the company always operates within regulatory framework and creates and facilitates appropriate business strategies as the markets and the company evolve. Limit risk exposure by setting internal governance policies and manage the impact of external factors. As part of the leadership team, provide direction, management, and oversight of corporate compliance programs, while maintaining up-to-date awareness of emerging issues, regulations, standards and best practices. 

Location: Toronto, Ontario (however if workable, open to candidates from anywhere in Canada)

What we are looking for:

×         10+ years progressive life insurance compliance experience (minimum 2-3 years at the CCO level), preferably also with involvement/management of digital marketing platforms.

×         Excellent judgement and analytical skills with the ability to collect, organize, analyze and disseminate significant information with attention to detail and accuracy.

×         Proven ability to successfully review and challenge business, client and advisor risk management practices and outcomes with both an entrepreneurial and consumer experience mindset.

×         Ability to prioritize key deliverables, multi-task and work well under pressure and deadlines.

×         A leader with integrity and credibility and with strong relationship management (internal/external), with solid influencing, vision and execution skills.

×         English – with preference given to bilingual candidates: English & French and/or Spanish.


If you as a CCO really want to make your mark in our industry’s future – and you can clearly demonstrate you have what we’re looking for, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
