September 6, 2022 – Government of PEI: A new pilot program supports projects or initiatives that directly contribute to making Prince Edward Island a more inclusive province. The Gender, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Community Enhancement Program will fund a wide range of small and large projects to improve cultural inclusion, population retention, anti-racism initiatives, gender-based support and empowerment.
“We are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion where Islanders with various identities, backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences feel a sense of belonging,” says Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Bloyce Thompson.
“As our population grows and our culture diversifies, Prince Edward Island must be a place that is open and welcoming for everyone who chooses to make their life here.”
In the 2021 Speech from the Throne, the Government of PEI committed to a more equitable and inclusive Island by creating new programs that provide under-represented populations with more recognition and support.
