Engage PEI invites Islanders to get involved in government agencies, boards and commissions

The Government of Prince Edward Island is recruiting Islanders to serve on a variety of agencies, boards and commissions, says Premier Wade MacLauchlan.

“Engaging the perspectives and voices of Islanders is vital to effective government,” said Premier MacLauchlan. “All Islanders are encouraged to consider ways in which they can contribute to the public life of our province.”

Engage PEI provides an easy process to become involved in one of the more than 70 government agencies, boards and commissions (ABCs), which include members of the public. Government is calling on Islanders to visit the Engage PEI website at www.gov.pe.ca/engagepei to submit an application for one of several current and upcoming vacancies.

The various agencies, boards and commissions can be grouped into three functional categories: advisory – provides information that assists in developing public policy and ongoing delivery of programs; operational – provides goods or services to implement government policy and programs; and regulatory – grants licenses, monitors practices to ensure public safety, oversees operations of public and private sector entities.

Although most agencies, boards and commissions are comprised of experts and practitioners in their respective fields, many also include representatives from the general public.

The interests of Islanders are best served through representation from all regions of the province, as well as including all age groups, cultures, francophone Islanders, Aboriginal people, and a strong balance of men and women.

“Our province has a proud history of citizen engagement, but we must continue to reach out to encourage more people to become involved in public service,” said Premier MacLauchlan. “Working together, we can achieve great things for Prince Edward Island.”

Engage PEI offers Islanders an opportunity to serve on a variety of government agencies, boards and commissions. For more information on Engage PEI visit www.gov.pe.ca/engagepei
