Canada’s Food Island gift cards will be available to purchase beginning Monday, Sept. 28 at retail locations across the Island.
The gift card program was created by Food Island Partnership to support P.E.I. local businesses, fishers, farmers, food producers, restaurateurs and tourism accommodations.
The first release of 5,000 gift cards will be available for purchase at Mel’s Convenience, Murphy’s Pharmacy and Co-op locations in Souris, O’Leary and Tignish.
Islanders are encouraged to get their gift cards early as quantities are limited.
About the gift card program:
- The gift card program is a two-year initiative and gift cards will be available to purchase year-round at full value.
- Customers can purchase a maximum of $300 retail value in Canada’s Food Island gift cards per person.
- Gift cards are sold only in $50 increments.
- Gift cards are not available for sale online at this time.

To celebrate the launch of the gift card program, a 20 per cent off savings on the gift card will be offered for a limited time, while supplies last. For example, a $50 Canada’s Food Island gift card will be sold for $40.
