IIREF: Education Philosophy, Compliance & Goals

As a corporate university, IIREF strives to provide an environment which helps students understand the business of real estate finance whilst fulfilling the corporate goals of MortgageQuote Canada Corp.

Education Philosophy


IIREF provides students the ability to attain both declarative knowledge and procedural knowledge through its extensive use of co-operative education based training modules. This provides students the ability to learn real estate finance theory and then apply the concepts to real-world situations in business.

If a student of IIREF is legally entitled to work in any one of the jurisdictions and fulfills all necessary legal, financial or other requirements, they may have sufficient training and experience to successfully compete for occupation licensing examinations as follows:
