With the warmer weather upon us, many Atlantic Canadians are getting out their grills. It’s a good time to remind people about summer safety around barbecues, and of keeping little ones safe near backyard equipment and play areas. Please pass this information on to your organization’s members or feel welcome to post on your website, share through social media, or on bulletin boards.

Welcome to Seniors PEI, a resource site designed for seniors of Prince Edward Island. Here you will find a wide variety of information for seniors, including links to regional and national and international websites that we believe can be helpful to seniors; websites that provide information about programs, services and areas of interest for seniors and for those who work with seniors.
We have news for Canadian seniors: links to current news stories, updated daily, that involve or would be of concern to seniors, focusing on the Maritimes. There is also a senior artist gallery section, showcasing senior artists of the Island. If you are a senior artist or know of one who should be featured in this section, please email us at email@example.com to let us know. We will contact you or the recommended artist to arrange for their inclusion on our pages.
This Day in History
|A word which some lexicographer has marked obsolete is ever thereafter an object of dread and loathing to the fool writer, but if it is a good word and has no exact modern equivalent equally good, it is good enough for the good writer. Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)|
