Tobacco manufacturers, wholesalers who are active in Prince Edward Island must apply to the Provincial Tax Commissioner for a license to operate in the province using the form Application for a Tobacco Manufacturer's Wholesale Vendor's License.

Persons wishing to obtain a marking permit or marking exemption permit must also apply to the Provincial Tax Commissioner using the same application form.

Tobacco retailers who are active in Prince Edward Island must also apply to the Provincial Tax Commissioner for a license to operate in the province using the form Application for a Tobacco Retail Vendor's License.

If the applicant is a corporation, a copy of the certificate of incorporation must be submitted with the application.

Retail vendors must ensure that a copy of the retail vendor’s license is prominently displayed at each retail location that is covered by the license.  If tobacco sales are to be made by the license holder at a new location not covered by the license, the retail vendor must apply for an amendment to their retail vendor’s license.

Applicants for a wholesale vendor’s license may be required by the Provincial Tax Commissioner to deposit a bond with the Commissioner.  The minimum value of the bond is five thousand dollars, and the maximum is not to exceed an amount equal to six times the estimated monthly tax collected by the wholesale vendor.
