In partnership with United Way PEI and funded by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, Hospice PEI is launching a new action plan in response to Covid-19 for our most vulnerable population – senior citizens isolated from their communities by the pandemic.
No Islander Alone will see Hospice PEI’s specially trained volunteers providing wellness checks and support by phone to seniors across Prince Edward Island.
If you are a PEI senior citizen or know of someone who is, and would benefit from the No Islander Alone program, please call us at 1-844-954-7433
March 25, 2020
Islanders with concerns about people they know not following the self-isolation directive can contact the toll-free COVID-19 information line at 1-800-958-6400.
Do not call 911.
The penalties for Islanders who do not comply with self-isolation include:
- a fine of $1,000 for a first offence;
- a fine of $2,000 for a second offence; or,
- a fine of $10,000 for a third offence and every offence after that.
Islanders returning to Prince Edward Island from domestic or international travel must self-isolate for 14 days. Exceptions are being made for essential workers, including truck drivers, airline crews, essential public and private sector workers in critical sectors, as well as on compassionate grounds.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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)|
