The Insurance Division provides day-to-day administration of the Insurance Act through the regulation, oversight and licensing of insurers and insurance intermediaries (adjusters, agents and brokers, damage appraisers). This includes both life and health, and property and casualty insurance in New Brunswick. Compliance staff work to ensure that insurers and intermediaries are following the provisions in the Act and Regulations.
Any person who carries on the business of an insurance agent, broker, adjuster or damage appraiser in New Brunswick, whether or not that person is a resident of the province, must have a valid licence issued under the Insurance Act of New Brunswick. This applies to all insurance business, whether it is done in person, in writing, over the telephone or online.
