Events & Workshops

  • On Monday September 14, 2020, we met with our very first Child Advocate for Prince Edward Island. Stay tuned for further details as we plan to reschedule a meeting with Mr. Marvin Bernstein, PEI’s first Child Advocate, in the near future to bring him up to date on what we are finding is lacking in policy and support.
  • In October of 2020 we met for the second time with our Premier, Mr. Dennis King, and our Minister of Social Development and Housing, Mr. Ernest Hudson, to talk about the need and policy for those Grandfamilies who are supporting their Grandchildren with or without support. Stay tuned for further details as we plan on another meeting with the Premier and Minister of Social Development to engage in further dialogue about this phenomenon.
  • We have begun our research with Dr. Christina Murray from UPEI by interviewing Grandparents who are raising their grandchildren to find out what the issues are surrounding this phenomenon.
  • Since Covid-19 has affected all Canadians, we here on Prince Edward Island have been vigilant  about what we do to stop the spread and PEI has done an excellent job in doing so. Please stand by for further updates on what we as Islanders are doing on our part to help with this pandemic.
