The following expenses are eligible:

  • purchase/construction of waste sorting stations;
  • waste removal costs;
  • portable washroom rentals;
  • construction of permanent washrooms;
  • beach access improvements, such as boardwalks, steps, beach wheelchairs, etc.

“Prince Edward Island is so fortunate to have such beautiful, pristine beaches. It’s important that they are maintained to ensure both Islanders and visitors have a positive experience and an enjoyable time at the beach.”
