Press Release from the Province of PEI Regarding Supports for Fiona Recovery:

News Release

Published Date: Tuesday, September 27, 2022 | View More


Government provides update on operations and launches relief programs

During a media briefing on Tuesday, September 27th government provided an update on operations and relief programs as the province continues to recover from Hurricane Fiona.

Transportation and Infrastructure

Provincial crews continue to clear roads and work alongside Maritime Electric when trees are on lines. In the effort to return power to as many Islanders as possible as quickly as possible, later today, Maritime Electric will be working to restore power in the North River Roundabout area.

In order to complete this work, beginning this afternoon, one lane will be shut down to westbound traffic. Starting tomorrow, both lanes westbound will be closed. A detour will be set up around the site.

Government understands this is likely to cause traffic congestion and further
frustration, but it is important to close this road for the safety of Maritime Electric crews so they can complete this important work. Some of the impacted intersections for this detour are working again, and traffic control personnel and message boards will be put in the area where necessary.
 

Island Waste Management Corporation (IWMC) will be opening its sites for regular disposal operations beginning Thursday, September 29. Islanders are reminded that the clean-up effort will take time and that there is no rush to get debris, branches, or food waste to IWMC.

When the site opens, disposal fees will be waived for residential customers to drop off their spoiled food and waste. Roadside pick-up will resume when it is safe to do so.
 

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is working to set up private pits across the Island for the disposal of trees and brush. Details on those locations will be provided tomorrow with drop-off starting Thursday.


Beginning tomorrow, a dedicated phone line will be made available to Islanders to call and put their names on a list for property debris clean-up and removal. Residents without the ability to remove trees and brush and deliver them to our disposal sites will also be able to call for assistance. That number will be made available tomorrow.

Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture

Today, the government is launching the Wage Rebate for Impacted Workers. This program provides a 100 percent wage rebate for businesses while closed due to power outages or significant physical damage making operating and earning revenue impossible. 


For the next two weeks, this wage rebate program will allow employers to pay their employees up to a maximum of $25 per hour to a max of $1000 per week per employee. Employers will be to apply and make claims for the program starting next week.

Fisheries and Communities

The Employment Development Agency’sSpecial Projects Program can provide support to any municipalities that may need to hire some temporary staff to help with clean-up.

To learn more about the program, visit:

In addition, the Rural Jobs Initiative can provide a wage subsidy if private sector businesses in rural areas need to hire someone to help with clean-up. To learn more about the program, visit: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/fisheries-and-communities/rural-jobs-initiative

YARD MAINTENANCE AT COMMUNITY CENTRE UNDERWAY

A survey of the community centre grounds was completed on November 18 to determine care and maintenance that should be done with plant material at the centre. Melody vanOmme, Lucille Carter, and Dave MacNeil conducted the survey and created a list of actions that can be taken to improve the grounds and care for the many trees and shrubs at the centre. It was noted that great work has been done over the years with individuals and the Women’s Institute in planting trees, especially, which have made the property one to be proud of.  It is hoped that in early 2022, further work can be done in planting low maintenance perennials and flower bulbs to further enhance the property. Please see the list of items to be worked on below and watch for further posts of days when this list will be worked on. All citizens are encouraged to participate, and if anyone wishes to join a landscaping committee to further this work, please contact Dave MacNeil at 902-569-4242.
