Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news, I am Joy Stephen, a certified Canadian Immigration practitioner, and I bring to you this Provincial News Bulletin from the province of Prince Edward Island. This recording originates from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario.

A new grant is available to help Island communities and organizations with initiatives to create a welcoming environment to attract and retain health care professionals.

The Community Grant for the Retention of Health Care Professionals provides up to $2,500 for eligible projects that make communities more welcoming, diverse and inviting for new and current health care professionals practicing in the community.

“With this grant, we want to help communities, residents and organizations across the province to welcome and immerse health care providers and their families into their communities. We all need to work together to attract new health care providers, as well as support those already living here. This grant will help bring the excellent ideas from many Islanders and communities to life.”

Community and cultural organizations, municipalities and recognized community groups can apply for the grant. Applications will be accepted until end of day Friday, June 28, 2024. Successful applicants will be notified by Friday, July 12, 2024.
