Reliance Appraisal Consultants emerged from a general real estate and insurance company, Reliance Agencies, which was established in Lethbridge in 1955. Real Estate appraisal services were formalized in 1963 and a broadened and fully segregated appraisal division was operational in 1972. A change of ownership in 1982 resulted in a total separation of the appraisal division from the real estate and insurance operation and a further change in 1994 now under Reliance Appraisal Consultants Ltd.
