Environmental Award Nominations

Do you know someone who has worked hard to protect, preserve or enhance the environment? Does an individual or a school group deserve special recognition for their environmental efforts? Has an Island business or organization shown leadership in reducing their impact on the environment?

Show your appreciation by submitting a nomination for the Prince Edward Island Environmental Awards. Candidates for an award can be nominated by any individual or organization including staff of the Department of Communities, Land and Environment. Current staff members of the department are not eligible to receive an award.

  • promoting public awareness, understanding and active concern for the enhancement and protection of the environment.
