Through the Red Cross, the Province of PEI is sending $250 to each Prince Edward Island household that registers here.
“Everyone has been impacted in some way by Hurricane Fiona,” said Premier Dennis King. “From spoiled food, to property damage, to extra costs incurred from fuel and emergency supports. Government is working hard to make the restoration of our Island and homes a little easier on everyone.”
While the need to register is clearly a barrier for those without electricity or Internet, the implementation of this program is quick and efficient: I received an e-transfer yesterday, less than 48 hours after I registered.
