Government boards welcome new and returning members

Islanders continue to share their experience and knowledge with their communities through their participation on provincial boards.

Last month, the Province appointed and reappointed 30 members to nine government agencies, boards and commissions.

“Having Islanders at these tables is essential to how we chart our province’s future. It’s with their insight and experience that we can really respond to what residents want and need for their communities. My sincere thanks goes to every person who puts their name forward to make Prince Edward Island this incredible place we call our home.”

- Premier Dennis King

With over 70 government agencies, boards and commissions, Island residents are encouraged to submit their application to one of many upcoming vacancies through Engage PEI.
