Islanders with an interest in the social and economic progress of rural P.E.I. are invited to help guide the province through a newly formed Rural Communities Council.
Building on the work done by the Island’s four regional economic advisory councils, the new council will collaborate with communities, industry and interest groups to promote community development opportunities that support regional growth.
The four regional groups were united after previous chairs and members said there would be benefit in sharing their efforts on common issues.
The Rural Communities Council will include eight to 12 people from across the province with a mandate to advise government on matters impacting rural P.E.I. through engagement with industry, academia and government partners on issues related to people, communities, wellness and the environment.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 8.
