After a temporary pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Partnership for Growth has resumed its work to set a bold direction for the Island’s economic future.
In July, the Partnership for Growth’s 21 partners reconvened to determine its path forward as the local business community begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, partners expressed eagerness and excitement to resume activities with an eye on PEI’s economic future.
The Partnership for Growth believes that now more than ever, their goal to develop an economic action plan that focuses on Prince Edward Island’s long-term economic growth is needed. After establishing a revised timeline, the Partnership intends to deliver this plan by the end of 2020.
In the coming months, the Partnership will be seeking input on its draft economic action plan. Feedback will be collected through an online platform.

About the Partnership for Growth
The Partnership for Growth is an alliance of 21 business organizations and industry associations formed to establish a bold vision for Prince Edward Island’s economic future.
During the 2019 provincial election, the Partnership for Growth called for all political parties to commit to working with the private sector to establish an economic action plan that will help realize its vision and move the Island’s economy forward. All four parties responded in writing with a commitment to do so. Following this, in the 2019 provincial budget, the provincial government allocated funds to assist with the plan’s development.
The Partnership began the development of its plan in January 2020. After pausing its activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has resumed its efforts with an aim to present an economic action plan by the end of 2020.
