Some government services safely reopen to Islanders

Islanders are reminded that some provincial government services are safely re-opening to the public today as part of Phase 2 of the Renew PEI, Together plan.

Last week, Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy Minister Steven Myers provided an update on government services that are resuming on May 22. Islanders are encouraged to visit the Closures and Re-openings section of the Renew PEI, Together website for the full list of government sites and services the public can now access. 

Government offices that are re-opening to the public today have put protocols in place to ensure public health measures such as physical distancing is maintained to keep staff and Islanders safe. This may mean that wait times for some services are a little longer than usual.

Recognizing the importance of protecting Island seniors, Access PEI is further adapting its service model to better support senior clients. Beginning May 26, Access PEI will reserve every Tuesday morning from 8:30am - 11:30am for seniors (60+) only. This change will be in effect until further notice.

Islanders are reminded that only select Access PEI locations are currently open for services from 
8:30am – 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. These locations include Souris, Charlottetown, Summerside and O’Leary.
