A registrant must hold or be covered by a policy that provides coverage of not less than $2,000,000 per claim or occurrence and an aggregate limit of not less than $2,000,000, excluding legal or court costs.
You must hold insurance for all counselling scenarios that apply to you. For example, if you are a school counsellor and work in private practice, you must hold private insurance for your private practice in addition to insurance coverage supplied by the school board.
A certificate of current/valid insurance must be provided in an electronic format within the HMS. Receipts will not be accepted as proof of carrying liability insurance. Insurance is usually renewed annually.

All registrants must provide a criminal record check document (with vulnerable sector check). A criminal record check must be renewed every 5 years.

If you have not had a criminal record check done in the past 5 years, please contact the registrar for a letter of request.

As a registrant of the College of Counselling Therapy of PEI, you will be responsible to ensure that your criminal record check is renewed every 5 years.
