We inform, educate, and protect more than 834,000 consumers through regulation and financial education, and we regulate 40,000 industry participants who make their living working with New Brunswickers’ money.

As the province’s financial and consumer services regulator, we are responsible for the administration and enforcement of provincial legislation that regulates securities, insurance, pensions, credit unions, trust and loan companies, cooperatives, and more.
