More funding for Island businesses (including HR Planning and Implementation)

Innovation PEI is temporarily increasing funding to eight programs to support PEI businesses impacted by COVID-19.

The programs that are being adjusted focus on business investment in the areas of planning, capital investments, marketing and promotion activities, and include the following:


“COVID-19 has created significant financial challenges for Island businesses. We are committed to finding ways to help entrepreneurs right now, as we face the uncertainties of this pandemic together. Our hope with these funding increases is that we can support businesses in making investments that will help them prepare for the future as we learn to do adapt to a new normal.”

– Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Matthew MacKay

Increases to the programs will be in effect November 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021.
