Islanders continue to join government boards in the new year

Communities across the province continue to benefit from the insight and knowledge that Islanders bring through their membership on agencies, boards and commissions.

Close to 20 Islanders have been appointed and reappointed to seven government boards in January.

“The innovative ideas Islanders come up with to tackle the different issues in their communities is inspiring. I am grateful for the level of dedication that the people of our province show as they work together to make PEI the very best place it can be for everyone.”

- Premier Dennis King

Every month, government boards across multiple sectors are looking for new members. Islanders can apply to one of many upcoming vacancies through Engage PEI.
