Mission and mandate

Insurance Bureau of Canada is the national association representing property and casualty insurers in Canada. Its member companies account for 90% of the market for home, car and business insurance across the country.


IBC is the voice of property and casualty insurers and a partner for governments, insurance stakeholders, and consumers.

For over 50 years, IBC has used its leadership position to speak to governments and regulators as an advocate for accessible, affordable property and casualty insurance for all Canadians. It also works on a variety of issues affecting not only the insurance industry but also different levels of government.

Resources for the media and consumers

IBC is committed to providing accurate and unbiased information. It is a reference for the media and consumers who rely on it for information about property and casualty insurance.

IBC’s Insurance Information Centre offers consumers a range of services, providing information and support when they purchase a car, home, or business insurance policy, or when they need to file a claim.

IBC’s role when disaster strikes

Major events, including those of natural origin, sometimes bring disaster. When this happens, IBC acts quickly to provide information about insurance coverage and the claims settlement process. IBC works with insurers, civil authorities, and other parties to make sure that people facing disaster get the help and information they need.

Depending on the nature and scope of the event, IBC’s Community Assistance Mobile Pavilion (CAMP) may travel to the site so that the IBC team can provide disaster victims with support and information.
