Adjuster's Licenses

There are two types of adjuster's licenses in PEI.

  1. Probationary License
  2. Full License

Anyone acting as an adjuster in PEI must hold a license.

(1) Probationary License

  • All probationary licensees must be supervised by a full licensee. 
  • Supervising licensee must review, and countersign all claims reports and settlement offers completed or submitted by the probationary licensee. 
  • Both the supervising and probationary licensee must sign a Supervision Undertaking detailing this relationship.
  • Probationary Licenses can be issued for a maximum of 5 years unless an extension is granted by the Superintendent of Insurance. Extensions are granted in very limited situations, which usually involve a leave of absence from work (ie. maternity/paternity leave, serious illness, etc.).  
WARNING - If you have reached the maximum 5 year probationary license period, prior to applying you should reach out to us requesting how to proceed by emailing: licensing@gov.pe.ca. Licensing fees are non-refundable. If you are ineligible for a probationary license and do not meet the qualifications for a full license, you will not be issued a refund.
