About Us

Who we are

There are three separate Insurance Councils in Saskatchewan, these are the two industry councils;  General Insurance Council (“GICS”), Life Insurance Council (“LICS”), and the third is the Board, which is the Insurance Council of Saskatchewan.

General Insurance Adjusters, Property & Casualty Agents, Restricted Travel Agents, Crop Hail Agents/Adjusters, Restricted Insurance Agents, Managing General Agents (“MGA’s”), and Third Party Administrators (“TPA’s”) are regulated through the GICS.

Life and/or Accident and Sickness Agents including agencies, MGA’s, and TPA’s are regulated through the LICS.

The Councils have the authority to licence individuals and businesses, place conditions and/or restrictions on licensees, to conduct compliance audits and investigations into the conduct of insurance licensees in response to complaints. The ICS is responsible for determining as to whether there has been a breach of any of the provisions of The Insurance ActThe Insurance Regulations or the Council Bylaws.
