More Islanders joined government boards

Island residents continue to positively influence the future of the province through their participation in agencies, boards and commissions.    

This month, the province welcomed six new and returning members to four boards.

“The dedication Islanders have to their communities is something that is ingrained in us all. Every member, past or present, has at heart a desire to make their community and our province the very best it can be. I have such deep gratitude for every person who puts their name forward through the Engage PEI process. Your willingness to share your expertise and lend your time for the betterment of Island communities is an important service to your fellow Islanders.”

- Premier Dennis King

There are currently vacancies on nine provincial agencies, boards and commissions including:

  • Anti-Racism Table
  • Canadian Free Trade Agreement: Compliance Panel and Appellate Panel Roster 
  • Canadian Free Trade Agreement: Electricity Transmission Services Roster Panel
  • PEI Sports Hall of Fame and Museum Inc.
  • Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal

“There are a variety of openings available and I would encourage all interested Islanders to submit their application to Engage PEI. It is a benefit to us all when we have representation from a broad cross section of our communities,” added King.
