Loss Control Program

Protect your community from potential liability and losses.

The MIABC’s Loss Control Program provides members with services focused on highlighting potential liability and losses arising from local government property, strengthening policies and documentation, and improving the risk intelligence of members and staff through training.   


2024 Program Changes 

The MIABC is introducing changes to our Loss Control Program that will allow us to tailor available our loss control services to meet the needs of our members. Below is an overview of what you can expect this year and the ways in which we are here to help. 

The points system has been discontinued.  

  • A Best Practices Assessment (BPA) will be developed and piloted with a cross-section of members throughout the spring and summer. 
  • Following the pilot’s completion, the MIABC will then roll out the BPA to approximately 80 regionally identified members and conduct these assessments until the end of the year. 
  • In the fall, we will launch "Regional Days" in two regions of the province. These will be one-day mini–Risk Management Conferences with sessions and training available to local government employees. More details will be provided soon. 


What is the Best Practices Assessment? 

  • Through the Best Practices Assessment members will work with MIABC staff to establish a baseline for their unique risk profile. 
  • Based on the BPA results, the MIABC will provide each member with a work plan tailored to address their identified risks.  
  • This workplan will recommend MIABC resources and services that can help mitigate or manage these risks, aligning with the Loss Control Program's goal of increasing local government risk intelligence. 
  • Our goal is to have each member complete the BPA with an MIABC staff member by the end of 2025. 


What does this mean for my local government? 

To allow time for us to work through the Loss Control Program changes the following modifications will be implemented to the existing program: 

  • Policy development and review services, document creation, and customized training services that were previously offered under the Loss Control Program are currently on hold. 
  • Access to these services in 2025 will be based on a member’s completion of their BPA.  
  • In-person inspections are suspended until further evaluation in 2026. 
  • The discontinuation of the Members Points system does not affect access to your Risk Management Grant account.  

Phase 2 of the revised program will be introduced in 2025 and we will provide more updates on this page regarding what the upcoming year will offer. 

It’s important to note that these changes only affect the specific loss control services noted on this page. All other MIABC services remain available and we continue to welcome your risk management and insurance coverage questions through 



As a member-owned organization the MIABC relies on frequent and open feedback to ensure we are continuously meeting your needs. If you have any questions or feedback about these changes please do not hesitate to reach out to us at
