The 2017 Prince Edward Island Children’s Report explores the relationship between the social determinants of health, health equity, healthy behaviours and health outcomes for Island children. Risk factors to healthy child development, cognitive development and the social environment are considered as well. The Report establishes a baseline of key indicators of child health and well-being in PEI, and calls us to take action for our PEI children.
The PEI Arts grant program is designed to support the development of artistic practice through a competitive award system. The process for assessment was modelled after the best practice of using peer juries to select successful projects and award funding amounts.

People, Prosperity, Progress: Working Together for All Islanders
The purpose of this action plan is to prevent and mitigate unintentional opioid overdoses and deaths among youth and adults in Prince Edward Island in PEI. The scope of the action plan includes the following areas of focus:
- Surveillance of opioid overdoses and deaths,
- Rapid response protocol to address a sudden increase in opioid-related overdoses in PEI,
- Harm reduction, including access to naloxone, communications and education, and opioid replacement therapy,
- Appropriate prescribing and dispensing of prescription opioids, and,
- Diversion of prescription opioids.
These areas are considered immediate priorities to prevent and mitigate opioid overdose and death.
The PEI Action Plan on Early Learning and Child Care focuses on two main areas: expanding access for under-served populations and for children who are more vulnerable; and improving quality.
