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). This includes life, accident and sickness, 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. All agent and broker applications must be sponsored by an insurer that is licensed to conduct the same type of insurance business in the Province.
