Who We Are
The Insurance Brokers Association of Nova Scotia (IBANS) was formed in 1949 by Chesley D. Fraser and W. Ritchie MacCoy to be the voice of the independent broker in Nova Scotia.
IBANS is a voluntary membership organization serving the interests of more than 1,100 independent insurance brokers in Nova Scotia. By working collaboratively, IBANS members have created a business environment that helps individual brokerages to prosper.
IBANS is a member of the Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC), a national trade organization, that brings together 11 provincial associations of Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance brokers in Canada.
The Core Objectives of IBANS are:
To enable member brokers to approach stakeholders in an organized fashion with common concerns about insurance issues in Nova Scotia.
To be a resource to government and industry partners.
To address the common concerns of the brokerage community.
