Take part in shaping a cultural strategy for PEI

The ways in which we express our culture creates a vital, healthy and prosperous Prince Edward Island.

The Province wishes to take a leadership role in creating a roadmap for culture which will be responsive to the ongoing and emerging needs of Island citizens and communities.

Province-wide consultations for the development of a provincial 10 year strategy will take place in April and May 2017.

What is the purpose of the consultation?

This consultation process is an opportunity for citizens to participate in creating future policy. We are eager to engage, to listen and to dialogue. Information about the consultations will be posted here and on the PEI Cultural Strategy Facebook Group, where you can join in on the conversation.

The Province will launch the cultural strategy in September 2017.

What do we hope to learn?

  • “What is a healthy culture?”
  • “How does our culture contribute to the social and economic well-being of Prince Edward Island citizens?”
  • “How can the Province best support the economic and social well-being of citizens through cultural supports and programs?”

Share your thoughts

Open dialogue is essential to the development and understanding of culture and cultural policy in Prince Edward Island. While there is much to be done, the strategy will ensure that both social and economic positive and long-term impacts are achieved.
