Safe Restart funding top-up for Prince Edward Island

Backgrounder

When the Safe Restart Agreement was finalized in July, First Ministers recognized that smaller jurisdictions face distinct challenges and circumstances. The Government of Canada committed to providing additional support to Prince Edward Island.

Under this agreement, Prince Edward Island will receive supplemental top-up funds of over $6.4 million for health care services and to support vulnerable populations. These services and supports can include infection prevention and control training for staff, support to community shelters, as well as covering increased operational costs.

This funding is allocated based on the approach taken under the Gas Tax Formula and increases the province’s population share to 0.75 per cent. 

The top-up payment was provided at the same time as the first Safe Restart Agreement payment on September 30, 2020.
