May welcomes new government board members

Islanders continue to get involved with provincial government agencies, boards, and commissions through Engage PEI.

 

Three provincial government agencies, boards and commissions welcomed five new members in May. With more than 70 boards, Islanders can find their fit to contribute their skills and knowledge in areas that interest them.

 

“Prince Edward Island’s tightly woven communities and interconnectedness is what makes us the Mighty Island,” said Premier Wade MacLauchlan. “Islanders are always ready to roll up their sleeves and get involved, and I’m very proud of that. We want to thank Islanders for their ongoing commitment and collaboration – together, we have the ability to propel our province to the next level.”

 

Some of the boards currently seeking new members are the Acadian and Francophone Community Advisory Committee, the Canada Revenue Agency Board of Management, Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal and the Canadian Free Trade Agreement Compliance and Appellate Panel.

 

Up to 20 vacancies become available every month. For a full list of current vacancies, and to apply, go to www.princeedwardisland.ca/engagepei-vacancies.
