 Monday, January 30, 2023 


Canada government has launched a maiden funding program to showcase Prince Edward Island as a year-round destination. The program will to inspire tourism businesses to think of new ideas to lure tourists to the Island.

The Multi-Season Tourism Product Development Fund will provide support to tourism businesses to create and develop new products outside of what they currently offer to help grow the province into a multi-season tourism destination.

“Growing Prince Edward Island into a multi-season destination is a top initiative from the industry’s strategy. It challenges us to do things a bit differently, to dream big, and consider all the possibilities of what tourism on the Island could be,” Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Bloyce Thompson said.

The grant will be administered through a partnership between Tourism PEI and the Regional Tourism Associations (RTAs) and Destination Management Organizations (DMOs) among others. The maximum grant per operator has been fixed at $7,500.

Prince Edward Island is one of eastern Canada’s maritime provinces, off New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The large island is marked by red-sand beaches, lighthouses, and fertile farmland, and is renowned for seafood like lobster and mussels. Charlottetown, the capital, is home to Victorian government buildings & the modern Confederation Centre of the Arts, with a theatre and art gallery.
