PEI Infrastructure Office Launches Improved Webpage
Community and Cultural Affairs
The Infrastructure Division of the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs today launched an updated webpage designed to improve services to municipalities that benefit from Infrastructure funding programs. To access the website, go to www.gov.pe.ca/cca and click on Infrastructure.
“The goal of the website redesign is to better serve our Island Municipalities by expanding the information on Infrastructure programs, our services, and application guidelines,” said the Honourable Elmer MacFadyen, Minister of Community and Cultural Affairs. “This is an important tool in expanding our outreach, educating Islanders and making the application process simpler for communities all across PEI.” The new website offers information on all 4 Infrastructure programs and links to attached agencies, as well as providing forms, contact information, frequently asked questions, press releases, and the division’s initiatives.
The Infrastructure Division will work to continually enhance its webpage in response to customer’s needs. Future improvements include:
• A quarterly E-Newsletter, providing comprehensive and up-to-date overviews of Infrastructure projects and programs in PEI;
• Future initiatives and on-going projects in improving Island Infrastructure;
• Up-to-date information on Infrastructure Agreements signed between the Federal Government and the Province of PEI.
The website redesign coincides with the development of a Provincial Literacy and Learning Strategy, announced by Premier Binns in November 2006. “This new webpage is easy to navigate, has an expanded range of resources and information and it uses plain, simple language which is easy to comprehend,” said Minister MacFadyen
The Infrastructure Division encourages the public to provide comments on the new webpage and continue to provide suggestions for improvement. All comments should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free to 1-888-240-4411.
