Our 
Story

Since 2013

The New Brunswick Insurance Professionals Association (NBIPA) was founded in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 2013. A chartered association of the Canadian Association of Insurance Women (CAIW), we strive to provide our members and the insurance industry abroad with networking, education, and development opportunities. While we frequent Fredericton, Moncton, and Saint John, our goal is to include all of New Brunswick and so events in northern NB including Miramichi, Bathurst, and Edmundston are included. 

Formerly the New Brunswick Insurance Women's Association, our name was officially changed in 2020 to represent all professionals whom frequent our events.
