New Brunswick online service

The Insurance Brokers Association of New Brunswick (IBANB) launched an insurance site for consumers to connect to brokers.

The new website can be found by clicking here
There is also a version in French to be found by clicking here.

This is different then calling in to a 1-800 number. When you connect to you find a local broker and get your quote online. Then you call the broker and finalize the application process.

This is similar to a site that Nova Scotia recently launched. Ontario also uses the system for connecting consumers to brokers. The focus is on the service that a broker provides.

There is an awareness campaign in New Brunswick that points out the differences between a direct writer, agent or broker.
