AgriInsurance (Production Insurance)
Sign-up for the AgriInsurance program will be a little different this year as we are going to be using electronic means of communication, such as phone, email, and text, to complete as many transactions as possible.
Instead of a drop-in visit, your agent will be in contact with you via a phone call or text. We will try to send information via email when possible.
In instances where something needs to be dropped off or picked up, we will follow the public health recommendations.
The application deadline to sign up for Production Insurance is May 31st 2020. Again, please contact your Crop Insurance Agent, or contact AICInsurance@gov.pe.ca and we will be sure to help you out. We wish all producers a safe planting season!
Production insurance provides production risk protection to producers by minimizing the economic effects of crop losses caused by natural hazards.
The Production Insurance Program is a provincially delivered program which is cost shared with the federal government through the Canadian Agriculture Partnership Agreement on Agricultural Business Risk Management.
Production insurance in Prince Edward Island is administered by the Prince Edward Island Agricultural Insurance Corporation.
