Online submissions for pre-budget consultations open now for Islanders to share their input and ideas for the upcoming provincial 2022-23 operating budget.
This year again, all pre-budget consultations will take place virtually to adhere with public health and safety precautions. Islanders can submit their input at www.princeedwardisland.ca/prebudget until January 24, 2022.
As a result of ongoing Gender and Diversity Analysis on pre-budget consultations and discussions with key stakeholders, government will incorporate additional measures to ensure that consultations are inclusive and accessible to Islanders.
Virtual consultations will include a Facebook Live event, hosted by Minister Compton, and schedules for that will be announced in the coming weeks.
Some highlights of the 2021-2022 Operating Budget include increased investments in health including mental health, education, and a cleaner environment as well as COVID-19 support programs and services to assist Islanders through the ongoing pandemic.
