About Independent Financial Brokers (IFB)

Independent Financial Brokers (IFB) is a not-for-profit Association representing independent insurance, mutual fund and other financial service professionals.

Just like the name says – IFB members are ‘independent’. That means that they do not work exclusively for one company, and are able to sell the products and services of two or more companies.


As an Association, our role is to enhance and protect the businesses of our members and to support consumer choice. We do this by maintaining an active dialogue with the federal and provincial governments, the industry regulators, and the decision-makers. In addition, we provide our members with a variety of benefits, including high-quality Continuing Education opportunities so that they can remain on top of changes and developments within the industry.
