Supports for impacted workers in PEI

March 4, 2021

The province has announced supports for workers who completely lost their income or will have their hours reduced by at least 12 hours a week from February 28 to March 14, 2021.

These include the $500 Prince Edward Island Emergency Payment and the $100 Prince Edward Island Impacted Worker Grocery Card Program.

The government will also be launching a $1 million dollar fund to help Islanders who are off sick, do not have access to paid sick leave, or are not eligible for federal benefits.
