Who We Are

Welcome to the Alberta Insurance Council. We protect Alberta insurance consumers.

The Alberta Insurance Council (AIC), formed under the Insurance Act, derives authority from delegations from the President of Treasury Board and Minister of Finance. The AIC has been working for Albertans for 30 years and counting, at no cost to taxpayers. Operations are wholly industry funded through examination and licensing fees, and assessments to the insurance industry. The AIC serves to fulfill the mission of protecting Albertans through the licensing and regulation of insurance agents, brokers, and independent adjusters.

    Our Mission

    To protect the Alberta insurance consumer through the professional qualification, licensing and regulation of insurance agents, brokers, and independent insurance adjusters.
