The licenses are done at the provincial level. Ontario is at http://www.ontarioinsurance.com/ (the Financial Services Commission of Ontario) and click on licensing. You will have to write a test, and there is some relatively easy education requirements (I've taught continuing ed to these guys. They come and do their work or sleep during the class).
I think for the first couple of years you are a level I which means you have to be under the wing of someone else. Again, that's in Ontario but other provinces are similiar.

Caifa: I don't have a link, but google will find it.(Cdn Assoc. of something something agents).
Independent Brokers assn: www.ifbc.ca (Hey! I'm a CFSB from them!)
and the agent's discussion forum that really needs some work:
