Government Boards Welcome More Islanders 

Islanders continue to have their voices heard on government agencies, boards and commissions through Engage PEI. 

Over 22 Islanders have been appointed or reappointed to nine boards this month. 

“It is absolutely tremendous to see that Islanders continue to help their communities and our province through their involvement with government boards. In a year where so much was unknown and uncertain, Islanders stepped up and adapted time and time again. Through it all, they still found the time to share their knowledge with us, and for that I am so thankful.”

- Premier Dennis King

  • PEI Sports Hall of Fame and Museum
