Apply for a Civic Address

If you require a civic address but not a building permit, you can fill out the on-line form below to obtain your civic address. 

The 911 Administration Office also maintains the provincial civic addressing database which is very important for the operation of the 911 service. 

Do I need a civic address?

Yes. Not only is it required by law, but it is extremely important to display your civic number so that emergency responders can easily see it, day or night.

How do I obtain a civic address for a new construction? 

If you have a building permit issued by the Province, the civic address fee is included in your building permit and you do not need to complete this form. Contact the the 911 Administration office at (902) 894-0385 for more information.

If you don’t have a building permit, you must first apply for a building permit through the Department Agriculture and Land or your local municipality whichever applies. You can get an application at any Access PEI site or your local municipal office.
