Islanders reminded to provide their input for the upcoming provincial budget
Islanders are reminded about the various ways they can provide their ideas and input for the upcoming provincial 2021-2022 operating budget.
As a result of ongoing Gender and Diversity Analysis on pre-budget consultations and discussions with key stakeholders, this year’s consultations include simultaneous translation, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, and longer time frames to ensure that they are more inclusive and accessible to Islanders.
All pre-budget consultations will be virtual this year and include the following:
- A virtual town hall on January 12, 2021, from 2 to 4 p.m. with simultaneous translation in both official languages. Participants are required to register in advance by calling (902) 368-5501 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm their attendance.
- An open Facebook Live event on the Government of PEI Facebook page on January 14, 2021, at 7 p.m. until approximately 7:30 p.m., with ASL interpretation provided. Registration is not required for this event.
- Islanders can also continue to submit their ideas and input at: Pre-Budget Consultations for the 2021-2022 Operating Budget.
