The Surety Association of Canada (SAC) is a national trade advocacy association that represents the interests of the surety industry across Canada. Its members consist of primary surety firms, surety reinsurers, surety/insurance brokers, and other organizations that provide related and complementary services to the surety industry.

Since its formation in 1992, SAC has become a trusted resource for construction purchasers, design professionals, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders in construction and business communities. SAC is incorporated under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act.

Upon successful completion of the six courses and registration with the Surety Association of Canada, participants will be awarded McMaster University’s Associateship in Canadian Surety Bonding Certificate.
