Prince Edward Islanders live longer, healthier, productive, and more fulfilling lives through supportive communities and environments which make the healthy choice the easy choice; ensuring the supports for living well exist for those who require them; and personal choices that lead to positive physical and mental health.
Islanders have a long history of working together to improve our communities and our Province, and to ensure the success of this new strategy, efforts will be required from government, communities, schools, workplaces, families, and individuals.
