Before purchasing an insurance product, always check registration status of the agent, broker or adjuster to confirm they are able to conduct business in Manitoba. When you check registration, you can find out what category of license they hold, when their license expires, what agency they may be associated with, who their sponsoring insurer is and whether or not they have any licensing conditions attached to their license.
Three steps you can take when selecting an insurance agent, broker or adjuster:
- Check registration status with the Insurance Council of Manitoba’s database: https://www.icm.mb.ca/agent-agency-search
- Check past disciplinary history with the Insurance Council of Manitoba’s Disciplinary Decisions database: https://www.icm.mb.ca/disciplinary-records
- Check with family and friends
